Browne will get opportunity to compete

There's been no shortage of attention for USC commit Max Browne at the Army All-American Bowl. Browne spoke with FOX Sports NEXT about his recent accomplishments and enrolling early at USC.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — The media surrounds him, fans thrust memorabilia toward him, and at all times Max Browne smiles, signs, and answers questions as he's done a hundred times before.

This is all old hat for the nation's top-rated signal caller.

The Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline product is set to enroll early at USC and there is little doubt when he arrives in Los Angeles he'll compete to take over for the graduating Matt Barkley and he could even be ready for the Hollywood spotlight.

"The coaches told me I'd have the opportunity to compete for the job," he said.

Over the last month Browne won his third state championship in Washington, was named the state – and then national – Gatorade Player of the Year, and most recently picked up Army Player of the Year.

As the accolades continue to roll in, Browne continues to be his modest-self.

"It was a lot of fun," he said of winning the Washington State Championship. "Our seniors set out at the beginning of the season to go out the right way."

The 14-0 season at Skyline yielded the stats Browne needed to put him in contention for national awards.

"It was sweet," he said about winning the National Gatorade Player of the Year. "For awhile it seemed like a goal so far off in the distance, but it's the type of award I couldn't have done without a lot of games, a lot of plays, and without my great teammates."

"It was awesome. It was huge honor for myself, my family, and my school too."

You may have also seen a highlight of Browne recently on the national television circuits. A trick-play bounce pass during a game made its rounds. Though the play got plenty of publicity, Browne doesn't expect his future coach Lane Kiffin to implement it into the Trojans' offense.

"I've thrown it two times in my career," he explained. "It's a lot of fun and our coach trusts us with the trick plays so it was a lot of fun."

If his high school career is any indication, the college football landscape may want to prepare to see a lot more of Max Browne.
