Red-Shirt players are limited to only a few games that they may have played one play in. I don't remember what the limit is, but I personally experienced going past the limit when I played at the University of Washington. Coach Don James tried to keep me out of a game with Syracuse University, but because injuries I played one down and lost my red-shirt year. I did go on to play in the NFL.

You are probably referring to a redshirted freshman. In football you receive a redshirt by not playing in any games in a given season. Also by receiving a redshirt it does not count against your years of eligibility. So a redshirt freshman or rFrosh can still play 4 years just like a true freshman can.

He began his career as a redshirt freshman in 2001.

Johnny Manziel of Texas A&M was a redshirt freshman who won in 2012.

If you play one game in volleyball during the regular season, can you still redshirt your freshman year?

He is a sophomore wait, i double checked he is a redshirt junior.

A redshirt freshman is a player who is in his first year of playing but has already completed one year of college. During his actual freshman year, he is in "redshirt" status, which means he can practice with the team but is not eligible to play unless he is moved from "redshirt" to "active". So redshirt freshmen are actually second-year players. Why do freshmen get redshirted? (1) a freshman plays a position that is already well-stocked by older players; (2) a player needs to get another year of maturity (physically) to get bigger and would benefit from more weight training and conditioning; (3) the player has not grasped the complexities of the offense or defense and needs another year in the program to learn the plays. It is normally a combination of two of these factors, or possibly all three.

The player only loses Red Shirt eligibility if they play a regular season game in basketball.

It has to do with whether or not he was redshirted as a freshman. If he was redshirted, that means he did not play in any games during his first year at the college. Players are eligible to play in actual games for 4 years, those years are freshman, sophomore, junior, senior. If they redshirt, by the time they are team "seniors" they have actually been on the team for 5 years, thus "5th year." If a freshman doesn't redshirt, then he is referred to as a "true freshman." I assume this is the same for transfer players, but don't know.

Reid McCollum is a back-up quarterback for the USC Gamecocks Football Team. He is a (redshirt) Freshman and wears the #14 jersey.

When their redshirt season is over. A RS freshman would have been in the program for his second season, sitting out his freshman year; then playing in what would be his sophmore season. For example, LaMichael James was a member of Oregons 2007-2008 class. He redshirted in 2008. And now he is a RS freshman playing in 2009

If you redshirt as a freshman in junior college you will still have 4 years of athletic eligibility left. Some Players redshirt in order to protect their eligibility, hoping to play one year in Junior college. Then transfer to a Big time 4 year University w..ith 3 years to play.

Yes, a player can redshirt once at any time during their collegiate career (with very limited exceptions for season-long injuries). If a player plays sparingly (or even is a every-play starter) as a freshman, they can still redshirt as a sophomore. After that season, they would be a junior in college, but considered a sophomore in terms of eligibility.

If a college football player is redshirted, it means that they are relegated to the practice team for their freshman year. For this reason, a redshirt freshman is a sophomore academically, but the player is given an extra year of eligibility.

No, a redshirt cannot play in a bowl game without losing redshirt status

A redshirt freshman is a player who sits out their first year of attendance at a college. In NCAA rules you can only play four years. So if a team has a position already filled a player will redshirt for a year in order to maintain the full four years of eligibility for when the position opens up. When a player redshirts they are able to practice with the team and even play a minimal number of plays during the season.

Yes, you can redshirt any year.

Constraints are limitations or restrictions that are placed upon something else. Constitutional constraints are the limitations set forth by the constitution or restrictions placed upon people that may violate their constitutional rights.

It depends on what you mean. In the U.S. by federal law, there are already some restrictions.
