25 | The Imposter: 10 Feet from Stardom | Part I

Sports Explains the World

Jan 17 2024 • 40 mins

In 2017, Rashun Richardson enrolled as a freshman at Hillcrest High School in Dallas. He claimed to be a Hurricane Harvey refugee from South Houston who had just lost his home, and everything else along with it. Just a few weeks later, Rashun became the star of the Hillcrest Panthers varsity basketball team, perennial losers who suddenly found themselves winning big behind an unstoppable player putting up 30, and sometimes 40 points a game. But just after the season, where Rashun was named the district’s offensive player of the year, there’s a knock at his door. It’s the police and they have some questions. Reporter Max Marshall reveals the truth of Hillcrest High’s star, delving deep into a story that’s as much about class and opportunity as sports.
