Student not Employee

By definition, a student of any particular institution is not an employee of that institution.

Whereas a student may be employed by the school they attend, their duties as employee constitute those things for which they are somehow compensated by their employer; and, those requirements they must meet regarding their status as a student are non-compensated, tending only toward their coursework. The two stations are neither interchangeable nor synonymous.

That which applies to the protection of a student while on school property is different from that which covers the school's employees; and, anything not done by one of the institution's employees during the regular course of their job which culminated in a mishap would not be covered by workmen's compensation insurance. This means that all athletes, if they wish to be covered by workmen's compensation insurance, need to get a job--- playing ball at school won't qualify.

What is the meaning of red shirt in college football?

It is a term that applies to college athletes. A student-athlete by default gets to play at the college level for four years. There are only two exceptions to this rule. The first is for medical reasons. For example, a student who gets injured on the first play of the first game in football. It knocks him out for the year. The injured athlete can apply to the NCAA for an extension beyond his four years. This is usually for one year. This called medical red shirting.The second exception is when, for whatever reason, a coach decides that he won't need you to play during your first year at college. The coach can red-shirt you and extend your eligibility for one year. You can practice but are not allowed to do anything but set the bench during games.
