Teachers and coaches at a Michigan school have been left baffled and furious after 21-year-old James Nash conned his way back into high school in order to play football. Nash claimed he was a 17-year-old senior who was seeking a transfer from a school in Lansing and had forged documents including a fake birth certificate to back up his claim. He got accepted into Mount Pleasant High School under the alias Javier Jones and played five games with the Oilers football team. His deceit was uncovered following a tip-off by a concerned parent and Nash was immediately removed from the school district and could now face prosecution. The school's athletic director Jim Conway was still trying to work out why Nash would con his way back into school just to play football.
