LONGVIEW, Wash. (AP) -- The football players at the high schools in Longview and Kelso -- Mark Morris, R.A. Long and Kelso high -- are all wearing pink mouth guards this season.

A total of about 200 mouth guards have been donated by Longview dentist Jared Franson. He decided to make them pink for breast cancer awareness.

Mark Morris football coach Shawn Perkins told The Daily News of Longview his players don't have a problem with the colors. They're glad to have good-fitting mouth guards to help prevent injuries and reduce concussions.
