We’ve all had that fantasy of going back to youth sports or high school to dominate the competition, run the school, and live up the dream life. Unfortunately for many of us, we only get one chance in life unless your name is Danny Almonte or that 22-year-old creep who went to Permian High to ball it up. Now we can add one more name to the list: Julious Threatts.
As Out of Bounds shares with us, Threatts had registered and played for the Town N’ Country Packers, a 13- and 14-year-olds team in the Tampa Bay Youth Football League. His alias was Chad Jordan which isn’t at all generic. “Jordan” actually played a few games for the team and wasn’t busted until he tried to enroll in middle school. People suspected something was up immediately because Threatts looked way too old to be in middle school and their suspicion was confirmed.
Threatts was actually busted when his mother called his cellphone and one of the administrators spoke to her. He’s probably lucky that’s all that happened otherwise potentially would have faced much worse than just trespassing charges at the school.
The story doesn’t sound too awful until you learn that Threatts went to the extents to forge a birth certificate, make up a life story about his parents dying, and compose an email from an alleged scout who labeled him as a prospect. Was the arrest worth playing a few youth games and scoring a pair of TDs? Probably not. How did he not dominate more than that??
