Marcus Mariota is regarded as the Nation’s top college player and NFL prospect as he leads the Oregon Ducks in the first ever College Playoffs. A lot of talk surrounds how great of a player Marcus is, but a unique part of his equipment that has gained a lot of exposure this year is his custom facemask. Riddell sat down with Marcus and designed a one of kind facemask for the QB. The popularity has grown so rapidly that it has pushed Riddell to release small quantities of the mask as well as custom mask companies, like B.A. Mask, to be flooded with request for this mask.
Marcus is from the Hawaiian islands and his facemask pays homage to his home state. On the facemask you can see the unique bar placement make the front of the mask read 808, the area code for Hawaii.
