Brothers Justin and Jason Ware graduated from Walker Valley High School and are now finding academic success to match their football accomplishments at Tusculum College.

A total of 99 student athletes were named to the 2013-14 South Atlantic Conference Commissioner’s Honor Roll from Tusculum.

Jason joined his athletic peers and the 1,172 from across the conference itself.

Both Justin and Jason were a part of the 193 student athletes named to the 2014 Tusculum College Athletic Director’s Spring Honor Roll announced by the director of athletics, Frankie DeBusk.

The brothers play for the football team, which coincidentally boasted the most student-athletes on the honor roll with 39 honorees.

The SAC Commissioner’s Honor Roll recognizes those student-athletes who carry at least a 3.3 cumulative grade point average and have completed at least one season in the sports of football, women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s cross country, men’s and women’s basketball, softball, men’s and women’s tennis, men’s and women’s golf, men’s and women’s lacrosse and men’s and women’s outdoor track and field. Tusculum’s 99 honorees are the sixth-most of the 12 league members.

Tusculum is a NCAA Division II member of the South Atlantic Conference and sponsors 16 intercollegiate sports. It is also the oldest college in the state and the 28th oldest in the nation.

Tusculum is a liberal arts institution committed to providing a liberal arts education in a Judeo-Christian and civic arts environment, with pathways for career preparation, personal development and civic engagement.

Justin and Jason Ware are cheered on by their mother, Peggy Goodine, and siblings: Quantal Langford, Alisha Jarrett, Sheena Ware, Russell Ware, Dishun Humes, Tequila Parks and Julius Porton.
