Former Notre Dame Max Redfield Dismissed For Possession Of Unlicensed Firearm
After pleading not guilty for the charges of possessing a firearm without a license and marijuana, former Notre Dame player Max Redfield went to Twitter to express his remorse.
After the kick off game at Notre Dame, Redfield details his feelings regarding the poor decisions he made. Redfield was expected to play as safety during this season. However, according to the Chicago Tribune, he was dismissed from the team after two separate reported incidents involved him. The incidents happened on August 19 along with Te'von Coney, Kevin Stepherson, Dexter Williams and Ashton White.
Coney and Stepherson pleaded not guilty while White and Williams filed motions to waive initial hearings.
Meanwhile Cornerback Devin Butler was also suspended but indefinitely. He was arrested for a separate incident involving resisting arrest, and attacking a police officer.
He was one of six Irish football players accused of possessing a firearm without a license and possession of marijuana as well. These are considered as misdemeanors. These misdemeanors caused the team's coach, Brian Kelly, to send him home.
Redfield went to Twitter and says, "The love I have for my brothers has never wavered and will never waver regardless of the poor decisions I have made and will make," Redfield wrote. He mentions the opportunities he missed at Notre Dame and adds that he is learning from his mistakes. He felt remorse after being separated from his own team. Redfield also feels alienated from the team and the school. Even from the fans.
Coach Kelly had high expectations from him, saying he's the "guy that everybody was hoping for." He describes Redfield to be on an elite level already.
Even though he is unable to play, Redfield vows not to let this downfall define him as a person. He still wishes his brothers well versus the Longhorns.
Coach Kelly hopes they learn their lessons. "You have to be prepared as a college coach to deal with poor decisions," Kelly said. "You have to be fair, but you also have to be quick in making decisions."
