USC's Max Browne moving forward with confidence after spring finale

USC quarterback Max Browne confident after making plays for Trojans offense in spring practice

USC backup quarterback Max Browne will go into the summer with a big dose of confidence.

Browne, a third-year sophomore, completed 24 of 37 passes for 251 yards and two touchdowns in the Trojans' modified scrimmage that concluded spring practice Saturday at the Coliseum.

Browne connected with walk-on receiver Christian Tober for a four-yard touchdown and with JuJu Smith on a 15-yard scoring play.

USC Coach Steve Sarkisian limited starter Cody Kessler’s snaps and, to avoid injuries, called only a few running plays.

"Max Browne did what he's been doing all spring long," Sarkisian said. "He just comes in and he’s been making plays."

The 6-foot-5 Browne said this spring that he was playing without hesitation after two years in the program.

The Trojans open the 2015 season Sept. 5 against Arkansas State.
