WJBF Scholar Athlete: Briarwood Academy’s Jesse Cushman

Scholar Athlete Award

Jesse Cushman is one of the most talented all-around student-athletes in the area.

The four-sport star at Briarwood Academy is an all-state football and basketball player. He’s also led the golf and track teams to multiple state championships. Cushman has accomplished a lot throughout his time at Briarwood, and he said the reason for his success comes from the relationships he has with his classmates.

“Fourteen years together,” Cushman said. “We’re always competitive in everything we do. We push eachother to our limits, and I think that’s what has gotten me to this point.”

“They are a great group of kids,” Jesse’s father, Edward Cushman, said. “There are four or five of them, who have always hung together. They feed off eachother competitively on the field and in the classroom. They are all great kids.”

Cushman plans to attend Clemson University where he will study engineering and try to walk on the Tigers football team.
