Yes there is such a thing and Kyle Pugh still plays for Northern Illinois.
Redshirted as a freshman in 2015.
Tore his biceps tendon in 2017 and got medical redshirt.
COVID year in 2020
Blew out his knee in 2021, another medical redshirt
So 2022 is year 8 and he’s still around. He’s old enough to rent a car, for cryin’ out loud. He’s also working on his second master’s degree.
In addition, he signed at NIU with TE Daniel Crawford. Crawford’s little brother Alex was a seventh grader at the time. Alex, a wide receiver, is now in his second season as Pugh’s teammate
