“The Kamiah Kid” Ken Hobart is the first of a long line of great Vandal passers, but what sets him apart from the rest is his ability to make things happen with both his feet and his arm. Hobart’s 1983 average of 345.5 total yards per game ranks 22nd in NCAA D-1AA history and his 3,800 total yards that season was the best in the nation,  while his career total of 11,127 yards of offense ranks 12th. Hobart holds the third-best single-game passing total in Idaho history, with 527 yards against Southern Colorado in 1983 and holds the top rushing effort by a quarterback, with 155 yards against Simon Fraser in 1981. Hobart left the school with the all-time record for touchdown passes at 79, which now ranks second. For his career, Hobart averaged one touchdown per 15.4 pass attempts. A great athlete on the track as well, Hobart ranks sixth in Idaho track & field history in the decathlon.
