SAMMAMISH, Wash. -- It's been quite a year for Skyline High quarterback Max Browne. The five-star Rivals.com recruit threw for 4,526 yards, 49 touchdowns, and just five interceptions in a high-flying offense. He led the Spartans to the Class4A state championship, and committed to USC. He's done all this while maintaining a 3.5 GPA and donating his time to community endeavors. For all of those things, Browne received the Gatorade Player of the Year award at Skyline's auditorium on Tuesday, though he had no idea it was going to happen until just before the ceremony started.
