OK, weird one.  My son plays at a small high school, be is backup TE, and comes in during two tight sets and sometimes as a wingback.  Our team has very little depth and one of the starting O-Line guys was suspended.  So, my son will now have to fill in on the line (second backup).  As a TE he wears number 80.

So now when they may need him at O-Line, he has another set of shoulder pads with a jersey that has number 76, he will quickly swap out pads to play O-line.  

I assume this is legal?  Or is it not?  

Thanks!

Legal, as long as he does not go more than 2 yards down field on a pass play.

No rule in Fed or NCAA says a player needs to keep the same number during a game.  Or pads!
