In The CW’s hit series “All American: Homecoming,” Sylvester Powell stars as baseball player Jessie Raymond Jr., AKA J.R., who has faced a lot of change between his parent’s divorce, a new position on the baseball team, and finding out that Damon (Peyton Alex Smith) is his brother. Now he’s taking the time to focus on what’s important to him – his fraternity, baseball, and a surprising new love interest that will challenge him in more ways than one. He’s stepping into his power and setting boundaries so that he can take control of his future.
