Jake Browning, the Folsom (Calif.) High School quarterback set to enroll at the University of Washington in January, was named Thursday the California Gatorade Player of the Year, the second year in a row he has won that award.
Browning signed a financial-aid agreement with UW in September and will be the centerpiece for the Huskies’ 2015 recruiting class.
Last week, Browning broke his own single-season state record with his 76th touchdown pass in leading Folsom to a 56-14 playoff victory over Monterey Trail. Folsom will play for the Division I Sac-Joaquin Section championship this Saturday.
- With the Seahawks and Eagles matchup Sunday, Bob Condotta caught up this week with former Husky great Chris Polk.
- Jon Wilner of the San Jose Mercury News grades out each of the Pac-12 coaches this season. He gives Chris Petersen a C-minus.
- It looks like Stanford is a sure bet for the new Foster Farms Bowl.
- USC is one of many schools playing the “what if” game.
I am honored to be named The Gatorade Player of the Year for Nevada. I couldn't have done this without the help of my coaches and teammates.
