An interview with an old Hopkins goalie who at one point talks about how he didn't wear a chest protector whilst he was there:

Quote:
Steven, Ellicott City: Did you really play all four years at Johns Hopkins without a chest protector?

Quint Kessenich: I wore an old catcher's chest protector through high school and part of [my first year at] Hopkins. For the remaining three years at Hopkins and many years of club ball with Team Toyota, I didn't use one, which by today's standards is illegal and idiotic. There were only two times I got hit hard enough to fear for my personal safety - Adam Wright nailed me in the sternum in practice, and in 1990, one of the Gait brothers hit me from 6 yards out. All goalies are a little bit off between the ears, that was just my way of getting a mental edge.


I know we're all crazy but wow haha

When I played for York University in Toronto (in the 80's) we had a goalie in my second year from Philadephia who just wore an extra sweat shirt under his playing jersey. Says it helped to keep him sharp with his stick skills!!!
