Millen, GA (WJBF) -- Mark Brannen has already won 1 state championship. The Jenkins County senior wants a couple more. It's that kind of drive that makes him a great athlete, a great student, and this week's WJBF Scholar Athlete Award winner.

Brannen won the GHSA 3200 meter state championship in Class A in 2012. He finished 3rd in the 1600 meter run. He wants to win both of those events this year. He also finished runner-up in the GHSA public Class A cross country championship in 2013.

Brannen says he is motivated by his coach who is also his dad, Jimmy Brannen.

Mark Brannen is a standout in the classroom receiving numerous awards. He plans to run cross country at Mercer University and wants to major in biology.
