Browne turned in one of the most prolific careers in state history, and many around the area wondered if he was the best quarterback the state ha ever seen. He’s Washington’s career leader in passing yards (12,953) and completions (882 in 52 games) and has thrown for 146 touchdowns in three years.

During his senior year, in which he led Skyline of Sammamish to the Class 4A state championship, Browne tossed 49 touchdowns and just five interceptions. In Skyline’s five playoff games, Browne threw for 1,883 yards, 20 touchdowns and just two interceptions.

Browne is enrolled at USC after graduating from high school a semester early. He will participate in spring practices once they start in early March and will compete with Max Wittek for the Trojans’ starting job.

According to the press release released by PARADE, here’s a little background on the All-America team: “PARADE has been naming its All-America High School Football Team annually since 1963 and has a long history of recognizing top football talent. More than a dozen PARADE All-America recipients have gone on to win the Heisman Trophy. Some of them include 2012 Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel, Matt Leinart, Eric Crouch, Chris Weinke, Ron Dayne, Herschel Walker, Charles Woodson, Rashaan Salaam, Marcus Allen, Billy Sims, Tony Dorsett, Steve Spurrier, and Mike Garrett. Some other high profile PARADE All-America honorees include Hall of Famers Earl Campbell, John Elway, Dan Marino, Joe Montana, and Emmitt Smith.”
