Notes:
A finalist for the 2008 Butkus Award, given to the nation's top linebacker...Cushing was one of eight Trojans named an All-Pac-10 First Teamer this past season as he placed second on the team in total tackles with 73 and was first in tackles for loss with 10.5...The 2007 Rose Bowl Defensive MVP and a semifinalist for the Lombardi Trophy and a quarterfinalist for the Lott Trophy in 2008, Cushing returned to play strongside linebacker in 2007 afterspending a considerable amount of time as a defensive end for the Trojans in 2006 when he was named to the All-Pac-10 Second Team for his efforts with a team-best 13.5 TFLs...Made an impact as a freshman in 2005 even though he missed close to half the season with a shoulder injury that required surgery and missed some of 2006 spring drills as a result...Other injuries during his career included a strained hamstring and the need for arthroscopic surgery on his left knee following spring practice in 2007.
