Jesse “JR” Raymond Jr. in “All American: Homecoming”


In The CW’s new drama “All American: Homecoming,” Sylvester Powell stars as baseball player Jessie Raymond Jr., AKA J.R., whose dedication and hard work make up for what he lacks in raw talent. A member of Kappa Epsilon Kappa fraternity and a natural born leader, he is the heart and soul of the team. However, he has a tendency to run from confrontation and the people who hurt him. As Damon (Peyton Alex Smith) settles into Bringston, J.R. finds himself struggling to live in Damon’s shadow both on and off the field.


Powell is a dedicated and accomplished actor and athlete from the West Side of Chicago, Illinois. He made his debut as an actor in film and television in such shows as the Facebook series “Five Points” and “Criminal Minds.” He worked in leading and supporting roles in the indie films “Gods,” “Two Wolves” and “Kilo Valley.”


His athleticism led him to starring in ads for Asics and Nike. He was seen all over Europe for Nike, specifically in Nike’s first Paris – Michael Jordan store where he appeared in the advertising campaign for the 20th Anniversary of “Space Jam.”
