Change Possibly Coming To Redshirt Rules

The American Football Coaches Association’s executive director Todd Berry shared last week in a press conference the AFCA’s legislative goals for 2018 — which includes a change to the redshirt rule.

How could this proposed change affect college athletes? Players could now compete in up to four games throughout the season without losing their redshirt status eligibility.

In the press conference, Berry claimed the vote has been unanimous in favor for the change the past two years.

However, this new rule change cannot become official until April, which is when the Division I Council convenes.
