Redman puts BSU Football on the map
By Emery Rudolph
The Bulldogs football squad is having much success this season. They are currently the only CIAA team that is undefeated in the conference. They are also atop of the CIAA football standings right now. It must be noted that not only are the current players such as Terence Peete, Rodney Webb, and Clifton Budd having success, but so is a specific alumnus. This man is Isaac Redman.
He is now the newest addition to the Pittsburgh Steelers roster for this season. He was placed on the active roster of the defending Super Bowl champions on Saturday. The following day, they took on the San Diego Chargers during Sunday Night Football. Although Isaac did not play a snap, he was on the sideline representing Bowie State University in a prestigious manner.
He made his first Steelers appearance during this year's preseason. He led the team with 37 carries, 145 yards, a 3.9 avg. and three rushing touchdowns. However, the preseason is often related to high school tryouts, you are never guaranteed a spot. Now that he is on the active roster during the regular season, it is safe to say that he has some job security at least for a little while.
Redman is 24 year-old, 230 lbs. running back hailing from Paulsboro High School in Paulsboro, NJ. It was there that he made the All South Jersey First Team in 2003. The following year in 2004, he graduated and went on to what we call home, Bowie State University. Redman remains the Bulldogs all-time leading rusher as of today and will sport the jersey number 33 for Pittsburgh this season.
