Skyline quarterback selected state player of the year
December 20, 2011
Skyline High School quarterback Max Browne, who directed the Spartans to the Class 4A state championship earlier this month, has been selected as the Associated Press Player of the Year.
The selection was based on voting by sports writers across the state.
Browne, a junior, completed 288 of 409 passes for 4,034 yards and 45 touchdowns this season.
On Dec. 3, he led the Spartans to a 38-7 victory against Skyview, of Vancouver, Wash., in the state championship game. The state title was Skyline’s fourth in five years.
Over two years, Browne has thrown for 8,216 yards and 95 touchdowns. In addition to the award, Browne was selected as quarterback on the Class 4A all-state offensive team.
The Associated Press honor was the latest for Browne, who was selected as one of The Seattle Times’ state players of the year. Browne was also named the Gatorade Washington Player of the Year.
Joining Browne on the Associated Press Class 4A all-state team was Skyline teammate Peyton Pelluer, who was voted to the defensive unit. Pelluer, a junior, had 122 solo tackles during the season.
