BROWNING'S BULLETS: "I am so happy for this team. This is our biggest win in program history. And it's all due to the hard work they've put in. They bought in to what we have preached and it showed today. It was a total team effort and they deserved it. I'm very proud of them and this is only the beginning. We still have a lot of work to do, but this is was an amazing start to the season."
