Skyline High School quarterback Max Browne is one of six finalists for the 2013 U.S. Army Player of the Year Award, which is given to the nation’s most outstanding senior in high school football participating in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
The selection process began this fall, as players were evaluated by the U.S. Army All-American Bowl Selection Committee and by coaches from across the country.
“These players possess leadership, dedication and strengths similar to Army Strong soldiers; being named a finalist for this award only underscores their talents,” John Myers, director of marketing for the Army, said in a statement. “These players are outstanding athletes. We congratulate them on their nomination and are proud to have them wear the Army colors.”
The player of the year will be recognized during an awards dinner Jan. 4 in San Antonio, where he will be presented with the Ken Hall Trophy.
The announcement also featured a statement about each finalist, including: “Max Browne has proven throughout his high school career that he can put up big numbers. He has a strong arm, but his greatest strength might be his intelligence. Browne almost always makes the right decision whether it’s finding the open receiver down the field or dropping it off to a player coming out of the backfield. Browne seems to have an advanced understanding of the quarterback position.”
