While it’s not exactly a news, former Irish safety Max Redfield took to Instagram on Sunday to make his first public comments since Brian Kelly dismissed him from the program two weeks ago following his arrest on charges of marijuana possession and carrying an unlicensed handgun.
Redfield was pulled over on Aug. 19, the Friday night following the end of Notre Dame’s training camp, travelling in a car with underclassmen Ashton White, Te’von Coney, Dexter Williams and Kevin Stepherson. Those four were subject to “internal discipline” and travelled with the team to Texas, with Kelly stating they will be available to play against the Longhorns.
Here is the full post from Redfield from his Instagram account.
“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. No desire or want is ever worth possibly sacrificing the incredible opportunities at Notre Dame on and off the field, in and outside the classroom. I will continue to learn from my mistakes and vow to never be defined by the few mistakes I have made in my life. Being separated and alienated from my teammates, coaches, fans and more is a burden I am ready to bear although it hurts profoundly every second I think about it or it is brought to my attention. I'm confident in the dealing with my proceedings at the university as well as the legal issues I have brought upon myself and cannot wait to pursue relentlessly what the future hold for me, because that's the type of person I am...and the love that fuels me internally will match my perception externally one day and until then I will continue to reflect, learn, and grow to uplift myself and everyone else experiencing this thing called life...sending my spirit, my passion, my energy, and most importantly my love to my former team. Go Irish Beat Texas.”
