On March 4, 1996, the San Jose Clash selected Brownell in the second round (thirteenth overall) of the 1996 MLS College Draft. The Clash sent him on loan to the California Jaguars of the USISL for the entire season. He was selected to the USISL All Select Team with the Jaguars.[1] When the Clash released Brownell at the end of the season, the Carolina Dynamo signed him for the 1997 USISL season, but released Brownell in May 1997.[2][3] He then signed with the Charleston Battery where he played until 2000. Brownell also played for the Arizona Thunder in the World Indoor Soccer League.
