Absolutely. My coach sent kids home if they didn't have one.
Unfortunately not all high school football players wear a jockstrap. Keep in mind the difference between a jockstrap and a cup/cup supporter or cup jock. As players go from youth leagues into high school fewer of them wear a cup and supporter and more go to wearing a regular jockstrap. As a supplier of performance and protective apparel to schools and leagues I have seen an increase in the number of schools providing, requiring, or at least recommending that players wear a jockstrap in the last couple of years (it had been on a decline for 15 years). A jockstrap is the single most important piece of performance/protective apparel a football player can wear. A jockstrap will provide support and proper positioning for the testicles. A jockstrap is much cooler that cotton underwear or even compression shorts and harbors much less bacteria than underwear. Although a regular jockstrap will not prevent injury from a direct impact, it will reduce the damage done from such an impact by the fact that it keeps the testicle in the right position to retract into the abdoman minimizing damage. A jockstrap will increase testosterone production and thus adrenaline levels by maximizing blood flow and efficiency in the testes. As far as the schools and leagues I deal with I would guestimate that about 30-35% of high school players wear a jock, 60-70% of college football players and 80+% of pro players. Cup and cup supporters are probably at less than 5% of high school football players, 30-35% of middle school/junior high players and close to 50% of youth league (it is 50% of the teams require them not 50% on each team wear them-when required-those teams have better than 80% of the players wearing them).
But i disagree, i play high school football and im a sophomore.
Well i remember in middle school coach said "i did not wear one we can't make you wear one "
So i never wore one, but its at your own risk. You either wear it and feel uncomfortable and safe or dont wear one and be faster. I remember in pee wee we had to wear one but coaches don't make you.

Most high school football teams have 1st, 2nd, and 3rd string players, so around 35 players is a normal number for the number of players on a high school football team but, only 11 players can be on the field at one time.
There are twelve players on the field in Canadian football. A typical high school team will have approximately 35 players.
Only about about 2 percent of high school football players receive college scholarships "well about 20% of high school football players get college football scholarships." "martin alberts College Florida" is incorrect.
6% of all high school football athletes will go and play at the collegiate level.
jockstraps A lot of high school football players wear a cup because they are concerned about getting hit in their sensitive area. I do not think that most professional football players wear a cup, however; I think that they just wear a regular jockstrap without a cup. If you are a teenager and are concerned about getting hit in your sensitive area when you play football, then you should wear a cup so you feel secure.
5.7 percent of highschool senior football players will go on to college football.

Some probably do, others might wear compression shorts. It's important to wear something for support.
