30 year-old Jonathon Nicola is a force on the high school basketball team.

Fans of Catholic Central High School were crushed to find out their star center, 6′ 10″ Jonathon Nicola, was actually a 30 year-old illegal immigrant.

Nicola was leading Catholic Central to a stellar season of basketball.
The Daily Caller reported:

Fans of Canada’s Catholic Central High School were shocked to discover that Jonathon Nicola, the basketball team’s star center, is in fact a a 30-year-old man.

According to the Windsor Star, Nicola had been attending Catholic Central under the guise of a 17-year-old Grade 11 student after fleeing “South Sudan, his disease-ridden, war-torn home, for a better life in Windsor.”

After attending a mandatory Immigration and Refugee Board review on Tuesday, he was arrested by the Canada Border Services Agency for “allegedly contravening the Immigration Refugee Protection Act.”

“There’s really not a whole lot to say,” commented Windsor-Essex Catholic District School Board Stephen Fields. “Because of the fact this is a matter that’s still outstanding before the federal authorities, obviously we can’t really comment on it. Beyond that there’s not a whole lot to say.”
