MEMPHIS, TN- (WMC-TV) - Parents of Ridgeway High School athletes are speaking out about a student who faked his way into their school, and cost their kids a chance at a championship.
The Ridgeway Roadrunners were kicked out of the state tournament because of an ineligible player.
Now parents want answers about the man at the center of this developing scandal.
Parents and players said that his name is McKinzey Sewell. They said he went to school and played basketball with the team side by side. The team did not know he wasn't eligible to play or to even be a student at their high school.
"I wouldn't want to hurt nobody like that," said Ridgeway Senior Desean Dockery.
Dockery had no idea one of his teammates would cost him a chance at a state championship.
"He just act like one of us, we didn't really hang with him," he said.
