That mission was accomplished as quarterback Michael Harrington had the 2nd best single-season completion percentage EVER for an Idaho QB, completing a stellar 65.8% of his passes. Led by junior-to-be <b>Wendell Octave</b> (36 receptions in '04), Idaho will now look to stretch the field more in '05 with a mix of experienced returners and new prospects.
