Default Re: Simple High School Football Equipment question....

I've never heard of that being a requirement and I'm not sure why it would be.

I think it's for your ribs and other stuff on your body (not the shoulders), while all they give you is shoulder pads. I mean you have to protect other areas other than shoulders right?

It's not really a requirement, just a matter of preference. There are slots in your football pants to put the leg pads in so it's not all that necessary.

I've never worn anything outside of shoulder pads. Some may wear those rib protectors if they're a RB or QB, but I don't remember many wearing them. They're not necessary, but you can get them if you want them.
