Idaho earns most awards since returning to Big Sky | Sports

In a year where almost everything has gone the way of the Vandals, it makes sense that they would end the year with the most honors since returning to the Big Sky Conference in 2018.

The conference announced its annual awards Wednesday and included 15 Idaho players highlighted by quarterback Gevani McCoy, who received the honor for freshman of the year.

McCoy was named one of the finalists for the Jerry Rice Award earlier this week, which goes to the best freshman in the Football Championship Subdivision. It came as no surprise that he received the award for Best Big Sky Newcomer.
