When Skyline kicks off the 2014 football season this week against rival Issaquah, it will mark the culmination of a nine-month process for the Spartans as they try to return to the elite echelon of Class 4A programs.
Skyline’s players indicate they haven’t forgotten their 26-20 loss to Federal Way in the first round of the 2013 state playoffs, and it has served as motivation for this season.
The Spartans won’t be able to reap most of the rewards from their offseason work until late fall, but they know wins usually come from the sweat equity they poured out in the spring and summer months.

Max Browne of Skyline High School has been named USA Today’s Football Offensive Player of the Year and first-team All-America quarterback.
It’s the second major award recently for Browne. He also received the Gatorade National Player of the Year trophy from Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in a ceremony at the school.
The 6-foot-5 senior, a starter since his sophomore season at Skyline, broke the state record for career passing yards (12,951) this year.
He threw for 4,526 yards and 49 touchdowns in his senior season while leading the Spartans to a 14-0 record and their second consecutive Class 4A state championship.
Browne committed to USC last April.
He finished classes at Skyline and will enroll this month at USC.

Max Browne sets state record for completions
In typical Skyline Spartans fashion, the first quarter of Nov. 3 state playoff game was awash in touchdowns, leading the Spartans to a 59-17 win over the Puyallup Vikings.
