As a senior for EC, Browndyke was 67/71 on extra point attempts. He also nailed 8 of 10 field goal attempts, his longest being from 50 yards.

Two South Dearborn Knights appeared on the 4A Senior All-State team defense. Owen Lunsford was named to the team as a defensive back while Axel Bell made it on the defensive line. They helped lead a turnaround season for the 8-3 Knights, who bragged one of the lowest opponent scoring averages in the state. Lunsford had a team-best 105 tackles and six interceptions. Bell tallied 51 tackles, 14 tackles for loss, 16 sacks and three forced fumbles.
