Friday Night Lies: 22-year-old high school star busted

Months after he was named district Newcomer of the Year and led Permian High School (Odessa, Texas) to the playoffs, 16-year-old basketball player Jerry Joseph was unveiled as 22-year-old Guerdwich Montimere and arrested for presenting false ID.

Montimere, a 6-5 shooting guard, had sold himself to the small West Texas town as a homeless Haitian orphan, and moved in with Permian coach Danny Wright. (Permian is the same school that inspired the original Friday Night Lights book.) As it turns out, Montimere is really a naturalized U.S. citizen from Haiti who graduated from Dillard High (Ft. Lauderdale, Fla.) in 2007. His true identity surfaced following accusations by his former coaches at Dillard, who spotted Montimere at an AAU tournament in Arkansas last month. He was released from jail after posting $500 bail Wednesday.

    This dude became a teenage sports star. Leading the school in the playoffs.. you know he was getting some hot teenage tail. haha

    Statutory rape anyone? :)

  • sh!tfaced

    Greg Oden must be shitting in his pants right now…

  • boomshakalaka

    Did he need to find a bail bondsman to post bail? LoL.

    @ fallinup

    you’re absolutely right. He better PRAY that none of those young honeys come forward about having sex with this guy.
    Posting bail will definitely not be that cheap.

    As Dave Chappelle would say:

    “Nigga don’t do that, that’s 5-10!!!”

    I came in to post the Oden crack but sh!tfaced beat me to it.

  • JAY

    LMAO @ Greg Oden!!! LMAOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!
    He’s really David Robinson’s dad. That would explain all the injuries.

  • Big T

    Lets keep it real. With that ugly mug, Oden only got play from the 2nd tier girls… only dimes he gets is on the basketball court, when he actually gets some PT.

  • fallinup

    I don’t know big T. Oden came out of central Indiana. Where all the girls are corn fed and a little ‘suspect’ anyway. haha

  • CJ Bailey

    I didn’t know you could retire from highschool. lol What a dumbass.

  • bsteezy3

    LOL This story is funny as hell…unless you went to that Texas school, then it’s fucked up. He shoulda told them he was 18, and then tried to play overseas… You guys already beat me to what I originally thought: I hope he wasn’t fuckin’ none of his “classmates”…

  • Michorizo

    I bet his classmates are pissed that they have to find someone else to buy beer now.

  • haslem

    LOL! the Greg Oden joke

    Even better than the above article. Reac this one about Star player “Jerry Josseph” and how he was so torn apart over the Haiti earthquake and calling back home to his family.


    At one point near the end of the article the writer (who should feel like a complete jacka$$) wrote these quoteables:

    “Right now, He is a Man amongst Boys” adjfhkjasdfklasjdfklsjadfjsdfjhahahahahahahahlololololol!

    “”Basketball is a microcosm of his life. He’s still in his infant’s stage” <—adhfjasjhfkasdfkjasdhf kjasdhfh oh that is on f-ing point!

    and my favorite on
    "And he is extremely mature for his age. Fending for himself for so many years has given Joseph an air of maturity most 16-year-olds don’t have"

    it's also given him the skills to con and entire city like no other 16yr old. This is better than the one kid who was dominating the little league world series and was 3yrs older than he said he was a few years back. this is some f^king Jawauna Mann ish here.
