SSEC helps Georgia boy snag national archery title in Illinois competition

It only took four years for Brandon Scoggins to bring home his first national title, but he didn’t get there alone. Scoggins, a recent graduate of the Shooting Sports Education Center’s Elite Archery Academy (EAA) won national rankings after spending a week refining his craft with the center’s experts. Hailing from Lafayette, GA, Scoggins placed 1st in the traditional middle school boys’ category at the national S3DA tournament hosted in Metropolis, Illinois in July 2017.

Brandon has been shooting archery for the last four years and decided to attend the EAA in order to improve his archery skills. The four-day camp hosted by Georgia Southern University gives its camp attendees the opportunity to have their shooting stances and holds recorded and reviewed by Level 4-NTS archery coach Jim Pruitte (his affiliation) and Level 3-NTS archery coach Trevor Stewart (from SSEC). With the aid of the coaches, he was able to push past his current scores and bring home the win. Scoggins attended every session provided during the duration of the camp and even found a new hobby, rock climbing, which he got to experience while on campus.
