Video After The Jump
PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – Arlisha Boykins, a 22-year-old former assistant coach on the Churchland JV girls basketball team in Portsmouth, impersonated a 13-year-old player who played for the Truckers. The student-athlete was out of town at a club basketball tournament, parents of the girl said.
The JV head coach, along with the head coach of the varsity girls basketball team, have both been fired.
Sources tell 10 On Your Side that the varsity coach was “encouraging the behavior” during the game.
The game was Saturday, Jan. 21 in Suffolk against Nansemond River. Video shows Boykins wearing the number 1 jersey for Churchland, actively playing in the game. The child’s parent said she played under the student’s name.
WAVY confirmed Boykins is no longer an employee of Portsmouth Public Schools. Her last day of employment was Jan. 25. A school spokesperson said Churchland High School administration held a meeting with parents & players for both the JV & varsity team.
The players, along with parents, chose to opt out of the remainder of the season.
“Coaches always preach to the kids about integrity & those types of things, so I was just shocked,” the father of the 13-year-old said.
