Default Redman stars in goal-line scrimmage

Redman stars in goal-line scrimmage

LATROBE -- Isaac Redman is fast becoming a camp sensation.

On Sunday, the rookie running back stole the show during a seven-play goal-line scrimmage. Redman carried on all seven plays from the 1-yard line and scored on five of them.

On the first two of Redman’s TDs, he was running with the first-team offense. His first three TDs came against the first-team defense.

“He’s our best player,” shouted quarterback Ben Roethlisberger after the impressive performance by the undrafted free agent out of Bowie State, an NCAA Division II progam..

Steeler rookie Redman goes from unwanted to remarkable
Sunday, August 16, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

The Steelers have a new folk hero on their hands, an undrafted, mostly unwanted rookie who has become one of the remarkable stories of this training camp.

Isaac Redman, from Bowie State, got yet more chances to deliver on the goalline today and he came through as he has done since he first set foot on the Saint Vincent College campus with the Steelers.

Redman scored all three times against the Steelers first-team defense on the second live goalline drill of training camp today. And, in an unprecedented move, coach Mike Tomlin had him carry the ball on each of the seven live plays run in that drill. Redman scored on five, came close on a disputed call on another and was stopped one time up the middle by the second-team defense.

He first attracted attention when he scored on his only two chances in that drill a week ago. Then on Thursday, against the Arizona Cardinals, he scored the Steelers only two touchdowns, from three and five yards in a 20-10 victory.

Redman said the Steelers were the only team that really wanted to sign him after he went undrafted in April. If he makes it, he would become the first player from Bowie State to play in the NFL.

Wow this kid is starting to shine. Sounds like he is getting better and better. I would say we will see more and more of him as the preseason rolls on. It sounds like he has no problem holding on to the ball. So hopefully we have found a diamond in the rough.

I really like how Summers is showing true promise as a lead blocker and fullback. Redman is showing great ability to follow that block and find the endzone. All good news coming from this duo.
