yes its needed for a football player to wear jockstrap


Need? Likely. But, jock straps have fallen out of favor for compression shorts and Under Amour has become the biggie because they offer boxer jocks and other forms of support other than the bare-bottom jock straps of old.

I'd wear a cup too just because football is hard-hitting and you just never know where or when a flying knee or football cleet is going to seek-out your package.
