i just saw Dr. King passed a couple of months ago. He was a Tech icon! Some of the older posters could know; wasn’t he among the very first in the country to make individual mouthpieces for players?
That was a great part of every football season. Fitting that first mouthpiece.Yup, plus he was also the first to make them in team colors.
Prior to that, we just used the kind you put in boiling water, then got an impression and let it cool...... sounds worse than it was.

Nope. Well, not at Tech. Maybe at peewee and high school We had molds of our teeth made then from those mold we had perfectly formed and fitted mouth guards. Man, Dr. King was THE MAN. RIP
