When my son told me that he wanted to join the football team, I was taken back a bit. My son never showed any interest in playing any sports and hearing that he wanted to join a sport that was so potentially dangerous made me pause. It was that moment that I started looking for all of the safety gear that I could possibly find. Did you know that there are several different types of mouth guards, pads and safety gear for you to choose from? I spent weeks looking into every single piece of safety gear that I could find and created this blog with what I have learned.
