8 Cases Of Adults Impersonating Teenagers — Taylor Smith
In 2007, Markeith Smith visited more than a dozen Dallas-area high schools, claiming that he was a freshman high school student interested in potentially joining the football team. He was big — 6′ 5″ and 245 pounds — and seemed too good to be true. And that’s because he was. Smith, who alternately went by the names Markeith Smith, Iesis Smith and Rice Carter, was actually 18 then, but continued to pretend to be a high school student until 2011. He would visit each school and sit in on practices until someone asked him for paperwork. Whenever he was found out, he’d move on to another school. He still hasn’t been apprehended.
