Mouthpiece

(1/1)

Tom.OH:
I am a retired Ohio highschool official. I have seen several players in NCAA games with their mouthpiece hanging from the faceguard. Is wearing a mouthpiece a requirement under NCAA rules as it is in NFHS? Just asking for my own knowledge.

zebra41:
I don't know who or where the trend started, but lots of guys are carrying 2. One attached to the helmet, one not.

ilyazhito:
If they are wearing one mouthguard but carrying 2, it is inevitable that one is not worn. In the college games I had so far, I have yet to see the 2-mouthguard thing, but I have seen junior college and D3 officials remind players to put their mouthguards in.
