The goal of most players in US junior leagues is to play NCAA; right? So, why do they wear half-shields when they must wear full shields/cages in college?
Seems to me that, if they were serious about preparing kids to play NCAA, the would make the conditions as similar as possible.
Hopefully the parents didn't risk blowing their $5k spent on braces to have them just wear a visor.
Repeat after me, “PREP SCHOOL IS FOR BOOK WORMS AND TIN FOIL LIBERAL RETARDS.” Do you understand now?
