Despite Saturday's 49-14 loss to Nevada in Moscow, Vandal fans witnessed numerous bright spots, including a kickoff return team that averaged over 30 yards per return led by true freshman Kama Bailey, another clinic put on by senior punter T.J. Conley, and several individual efforts such as this stretched-out diving reception by true freshman starting wide receiver PRESTON DAVIS.

First, all of us at GoVandals.net would like to salute the monumental effort of Idaho's kickoff return team Saturday, led by true freshman return specialist Kama Bailey. The unit averaged over 30 yards per return, and gave Idaho stellar starting position all day long. Through 15 returns so far on the season, Bailey is averaging an impressive 24.2 yards per return. It has taken a few games this year to get it put together, but this unit showed outstanding poise all afternoon in the Dome. We honor this unit by listing the players working with the group most of the game below (regular positions in parenthesis):

Kama Bailey, True freshman, Returner (RB)
Robert Siavii, True freshman, Up-Man (LB)
Oga Faumui, Junior (Noseguard)
Fonomanu Sekona, Sophomore (DE/DT)
Adam Juratovac, Junior (OL)
Jeromy Jones, Junior (SS)
Joseph Dickson, Sophomore (LB)
Troy Vital, True Freshman (RB)
Derek Wieting, Redshirt freshman (DE)
Max Komar, Junior (WR)
Quin Ashley, Sophomore (WR/QB)

On four separate returns, this unit gave the Vandal offense the ball at the Idaho 49, 47, 43, and 37 yard line. An outstanding performance by any measure.
