Trip Report - Jake Browning

Folsom (Ca.) QB Jake Browning took his official visit to Washington this weekend and spent a lot of time getting to know his future teammates and also got a feel for the game atmosphere at Husky Stadium...

"I've been in some big high school games and they had big crowds, but I've never seen a crowd like that (at Husky Stadium)," Browning said shortly before departing Sea Tac Airport to head home. "There were a lot of Husky fans there and they were really into the game."

Browning's hosts on his visit were Jojo McIntosh and Sidney Jones and he said that he just spent time getting to know his future teammates.

"I'm already committed there and I've already signed (financial agreement papers), so it really wasn't about them recruiting me to come there. I'm already signed and I'm going to be there in January, so really, this weekend was about getting to know the players and coaches better," Browning said. "When I came up there in March and then in June, the players and coaches were still sorta getting to know each other and I didn't get to meet a lot of the players, so this time it was just nice getting to know them more and also I got to spend time with coach (Chris) Petersen and we talked a lot about football and how things were going for me.

"There really wasn't like one amazing moment for me on the visit. I already know I want to go there and I've been up there a couple of times already, so it wasn't like one thing stood out to me.

"I had a great time. I got to know the players better. I got to spend time with the coaches. I saw a good game. I saw the atmosphere there. I'm just excited to get up there in January."

So far this season, Browning has set several state career records and he's already thrown for 2,021 yards while completing 71% of his passes (115 of 162) for 32 touchdowns and just one interception while leading his team to a 5-0 record.

Browning and the rest of the Folsom squad travels to face Del Oro (Loomis, Ca.) on Friday as they continue their quest to win a state championship.
