Sean Washington joined the Greenville College coaching staff in 2015 as its first full-time head cheerleading coach.

A Texas native, Washington has been a part of the cheerleading world for more than 15 years and has personally cheered on high school, college and all-star cheer teams with his teams being nationally ranked. He has personally won national partner stunt and group stunt championships.

His coaching career spans more than a decade and includes coaching high school, college, and all-star cheer teams. He has also been a Senior Staff Director and Curriculum Director for a major national cheerleading organization traveling all over the continental United States directing elementary, middle school/junior high, high school, college, and all-star cheer camps. He also led camps in Hawaii and Costa Rica. His teams have won local, regional, state and national championships.

Under the direction of Coach Washington, Greenville University Panther Cheerleading competed for the first time in school history. The team traveled to Fayetteville, NC, to compete at CCA Christian Cheer Nationals. The team came away with several accolades and awards. The team competed in the Large Coed College Division and came out with a first place finish. Hoguey the Panther competed as well in the College Mascot Division and won out. Greenville University came out as the Grand National Championship with the highest score of all college teams competing (large coed, small coed, all-girl, etc.). Coach Washington was also named a "Top 25 Coach". 

In addition to being an accomplished tumbler and stunter himself, he has also coached tumbling for all levels. Sean is a certified coach holding certificates in CPR, First Aid, AED, and is AACCA (American Association of Cheerleading Coaches and Advisors) safety certified; as well as a USAG (United States Association of Gymnastics) member.

Adding routine choreography (choreographing more than 40 different national championship routines for college, high school and all-star teams) and music mixing to his skill set makes Sean one of the best all around, most highly sought after coaches, choreographers and cheer directors in the nation.

Sean attended University of Mary Hardin Baylor in Texas, Winston Salem State University in North Carolina and is a graduate of Liberty University, in Virginia with a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Kinesiology, majoring in Health and Physical Education.
