In brief: No

Not all jocks get jock itch.
It depends on other things like their weight, how much they sweat, whether they have athlete's foot (a fungal infection of the feet, etc. It can even depend on a person's immune system and whether you have diabetes or other illnesses that can predispose to the infection.
