Brandon Priest is a standout both on the field and in the classroom. The Coweta senior plays safety for the Tigers, giving his team a great offensive advantage. But it’s what Priest can also do in the classroom that has earned him Scholar Athlete of the Week.

Priest currently holds a 3.6 GPA and has earned multiple academic accolades for his hard work.

“You can naturally be the most successful person there is, but if you don’t work hard then it’s not going to get you anywhere,” Priest said. “You have to better yourself no matter what.”
