Browne goes for perfection...

Playbook spotlight: Who better to focus on this week than 2013 USC commit Max Browne? The five star quarterback is's top ranked QB in the nation and there is little wonder why, as the future Trojan prepares for the final game of his high school career on Saturday…

USC 2013 commit Max Browne is back in the state championship game in Washington, a place he's been two times before.

The quarterback led Skyline to a second place finish his sophomore season, a championship just a year ago, and now he'll go for the repeat to end a perfect 14-0 season.

"Winning another state title, going undefeated, that's something I haven't done here," Browne explained. "I was able to get the state title last year, but to get all 14 wins is something I'd really like.

Not only will Browne have the chance at perfection, but with nine more yards on Saturday, his name will go down in the Washington record book as the state's all-time leading passer.

"The way you get those stats is by playing all 14 games and doing well there," he said. "So that's probably my main focus and with wins come a lot of stats."

It's the unselfish answer Skyline Coach Mat Taylor has come to expect from Browne, a player he says is bigger than just the numbers.

"He's probably the best leader I've ever been around," Taylor said. "And he wants to be a better leader. I think that's one thing USC fans will see and their team will feel is his leadership abilities and how he commands presence, but does things the right way."

Browne's remarkable 73.4 completion percentage this season ranks him fourth all-time nationally. But, once again, he says it's about just playing the game the way he knows how.

"I know that if we play well and keep doing well the stats will come," he said. "That's kind of the way I look at it."

"It could be a very special season for him if things work out the way we think they will," explained Taylor.

It's a special season in a career that's bound to have many, many more.

"(My) long term goals," Browne thought, "have a successful career at USC, win a national championship, and I think every kid's goal is to make it to the NFL, so that will be a goal and I'm going to a great place that can prepare me for that."

"I see a young man that still has a tremendous amount of football still ahead of him," said Taylor. "The sky is the limit."

It won't be long until he'll bring his championship ways to Southern California. Browne is enrolling early at USC and plans to be on the field this spring, battling to take over for Matt Barkley.
