Browning passed for a Northern California and Sac-Joaquin Section record 689 yards and tied a national record with 10 touchdown passes in his first varsity start, a 68-28 road victory over Woodcreek-Roseville on Aug. 24. Browning kept the pass-heavy Bulldogs’ offense rolling along, seamlessly transitioning the spread formation from Tanner Trosin’s state record-setting season a year ago to the current version of high-scoring precision. He followed up his record performance with 387 yards passing and four more TDs in a 31-20 home win over San Ramon Valley-Danville on Aug. 31.

SportStars: What were your expectations or goals heading into your first varsity start?

Jake Browning: I didn’t really have any expectations going into the game. I just wanted to make sure that I went through my reads right and helped the team win. Obviously, what happened was more than I could have expected.

SSM: Do you feel any added pressure following the quarterbacks that have preceded you at Folsom?

JB: I just look at this as a completely new season. It’s a new year and I don’t try to compare myself with other guys who played before me. My job is to just go out and try to win games.

SSM: At what point during the first game did you realize that the offense was clicking as well as it was?

JB: After two of my first four passes went for touchdowns, I knew that things were going well. And when we were still moving the ball after they had a chance to make adjustments at halftime, it was clear that it was working.

SSM: What is the most important thing for a quarterback in Folsom’s spread offense?

JB: Decision making. I just have to make the right decisions on the field once the game starts. Every single thing I do is something I have been prepared for. I am not being asked to do anything that I can’t do.
