Got rings?
Weight room warrior Seth Branham built himself into two-time state champion
LUGOFF-ELGIN SENIOR SETH BRANHAM has a ring for each hand after having won back-to-back South Carolina High School Strength Coaches Association state championships the past two years. He also has enough trophies, plaques and medals to fill up a good-sized room - photo by Tom Didato
Too large to crawl in through a window and not allowed to have a key to its two doors, if given the chance, Seth Branham would probably live in the weight room located inside the Lugoff-Elgin High School Wellness Center. Branham, who earlier this year signed to play football at Mars Hill College, is a near-constant presence in the facility; sometimes, stopping by as often as two times a day, five days a week, to get in a quick or, an extended workout. Those long hours doing what needs to be done away from the cheering Friday night crowds have been the backbone for Branham’s being selected as the South Carolina High School Strength Coaches Association (SCHSSCA) 2017 Athlete of the Year.
