    Also, if a player gets injured before a certain point in the season, he can receive a medical redshirt, and not lose his eligibility.

    usually freshmen coming in to college either are not mature enough or dont have the grades,so these are guys that get redshirted.basicilly it just gives them a year in the system without losing a year of elagibility.the term fifth year senior means they got redshirted.also as said before if you get hurt you can also be medical redshirted.same process it just gives the kid another year to play cause he couldnt do to an injury

    Redshirting also allows the young players to mature physically(get stronger and faster).
