REDONDO BEACH, Calif. -- USC quarterback commit Max Browne found himself in the sand before the sun came up Friday, plopped face down on the shoreline with fellow Elite 11 finalists for a rigorous, Navy SEALs-inspired workout.
It was hardly a relaxing day at the beach.
"A tall, lanky kid? Doing pushups in the water and stuff like that? That wasn't easy," the 6-foot-5 Browne said, laughing. "Anyone would have a tough time with it. Looking back on it, I'm glad I was able to be a part of that and I'm glad I was invited to this event. It's real special knowing that three or four years down the line these guys are going to be the face of college football."
Max Browne's Elite 11 experience has been a rewarding one, as he got to meet USC star QB Matt Barkley and do a Navy SEALs-style beach workout.
