I had an instance years back where blood soaked a uniform to the point that it could not be cleaned. The player involved was a big ole' hoss and none of his teammates or sub-varsity mates could help him..... He ended up in an away jersey supplied by the home team. (they happened to be of similar school colors)
Gotcha. So it would be allowed. I have never seen or heard of it before mostly because of the amount of options available. I wonder if that was the case or, and dont laugh, if the coach didnt want to make a player feel bad by taking his uniform!
