This Guy Plays Notre Dame Football: #97 Micah Dew-Treadway

Almost to the end of the player profile series...

The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about all of them. One Foot Down’s player profile series will take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2018 season.

#97 Micah Dew-Treadway

Micah Dew-Treadway is entering his senior year on the Notre Dame football team. He has yet to make his mark on the program that he envisioned. Dew-Treadway is a 6’4, 300 pound defensive lineman. He is from Bolingbrook, Illinois where he went to Bolingbrook High School. Dew-Treadway is going to provide depth along the defensive line. Players are rotated constantly along the defensive front. Fresh bodies are imperative. It should not surprise anyone if Dew-Treadway is on the field for a pivotal play this season.

Three Things To Know About Micah Dew-Treadway:

  1. He has only played in 57 career snaps. Dew-Treadway played in mop up duty last year and gave an occasional blow to the regular guys in the defensive line rotation.
  2. Micah Dew-Treadway enrolled early as a freshman in January 2015. He redshirted his freshman year. His sophomore year was ended with a broken foot.
  3. Conditioning has been an issue for him. After the broken foot, he never regained his conditioning level in 2017. This will be something to look for in 2018.

Country, Condiment, or Canon

Greece.

Look, I have no idea who to compare Micah Dew-Treadway to. I have never been to Greece but I would love to go. My trip to Greece sounds very fun. Micah Dew-Treadway playing a quality backup role in 2018 also sounds fun.

Fun things include, going to Greece and watching a healthy Micah Dew-Treadway provide depth along the defensive line.

2018 Outlook

As I said before, depth is important along the defensive line. I would argue that it is the most important position to have quality backup players at. There are so many guys who rotate there during a football game. If Micah Dew-Treadway can have an effective 75-100 snaps this year, he will have done his job.

Keep an eye on the conditioning level. We have not seen a healthy, in-shape, Micah Dew-Treadway for a full season yet. The impact he could make as a healthy backup could be significant.
