SEATTLE (AP) — Max Browne has one more accomplishment for his resume before heading off to USC.

Skyline's star quarterback has been voted The Associated Press Washington state player of the year for all classifications. Voting was organized by the Yakima Herald-Republic and done by sports writers around the state. Results were announced by the AP on Friday.

Browne was already named the Gatorade national player of the year and USA Today's offensive player of the year. Browne threw for 4,526 yards and 49 touchdowns in leading the Spartans to their second straight Class 4A state title.

For his career, Browne finished with 12,951 yards passing, setting a new state record. He's was also the AP state player of the year as a junior and the second Skyline quarterback to be a two-time state player of the year joining Jake Heaps who won the award in 2008 and '09.

It's the fifth straight year a Skyline player has been voted the AP state player of the year.

Other players of the year for their classifications include: Bellevue's Myles Jack (Class 3A), Lynden's Josh Kraght (Class 2A), Royal's Alex Myrick (Class 1A), Dylan Hartz of Lind-Ritzville/Sprague (Class 2B) and Mike Olson of Liberty Christian (Class 1B).

Jack, Kraght, Hartz and Olson all helped lead their teams to state championships this season.

Jack, headed for UCLA next fall, was the anchor of Bellevue's defense. He recorded 21 sacks, including six in one game, and also averaged 19 yards per carry during the regular season as a running back.

Kraght was a three-time player of the year in the Northwest 3A/2A Conference, while Myrick helped Royal reach the state title game on the strength of his 55 combined touchdowns passing and running.

Hartz was a two-way star for the Broncos at quarterback and defensive back, while Olson threw for 41 touchdowns leading the Patriots to the state title, winning on the final play of the game.
