DEFEND HER SPORTS/DEFENDER SPORTZ, established in 1996 as an independent company, is a survivor of our family-run company founded in 1930.
I was extremely fortunate to be able to work side-by-side with my grandfather, father, brother, sister and 600 of the most talented people who ever worked in apparel manufacturing. We spent every holiday and birthday together. We truly were one family, albiet a BIG one.
I literally grew up my families, what came to be our 73 year old, made in the USA, manufacturing facility in the heart of South Philly.
During the 28 years I worked there, I learned every aspect of the company, including manufacturing, design, product development, distributing, customer relations and sales.
And I began at a very early age. I started by playing hide and seek among the fabric rolls. I also poly bagged and packaged the athletic accessories, modeled, answered phones, and filed paperwork. As I grew older and got more involved, I traveled to New York’s garment district to select new fabrications, designed many of our best selling styles, managed the photo shoots for our catalog and ran a successful sales group of over 54 Independent Sales Reps. It’s safe to say I learned to do every job there!
I attended the Philadelphia College of Art and finished my education at the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Sciences. It is through these outstanding learning facilities that I was able to develop the company’s most advanced quality control department. My patent and trademark on our exclusive protective pads were worn by every NFL, CFL, Arena and Collegiate football player.
We manufactured for every top label in our Country.
In 1988,I renamed our Reed Street line to the Defend Her Sports label specifically for women and used the Defender name for Men’s. We became a national label and were carried in every Mass Merchandiser’ store in the United States.
Our parent company was dissolved in 2003 but my love for what I did never died. When you order your uniforms and other apparel or equipment from Defend Her Sports/Defender Sportz, you get the highest quality AND Phenomenal service. As company owner, I manage each and every order mysel

· Hi there! I hope to not waste your time here, since I am not representing a team order. I have been wearing a pair of your leggings for the last 10 years when my sister handed them down to me from her high school soccer days (so over a decade of use here). My pair are the shiny blue ones, which I love! They are excellent and I’ve been wearing them out through constant use on an adult soccer league in NYC. I’m in need of a few replacements! Thank you!
Ventura Black Widows
Ordering uniform for a women's tackle football team isn't easy. Especially when most uniform manufacturers garment were not designed with a woman football player in mind.
After years of working with other uniform supplies I have dealt with cost mark-ups, late deliveries and even received wrong orders. I was happy to have located Defend Her Sports.
I am very pleased with the overall selection, style, performance and fit of defend Her Sportswear provides for the Ventura Black Widows women's tackle football team. Defend Her Sports is made for women by women.
El Paso Seminols
We, The El Paso Seminoles, have partnered with Debi Mohl- Mills to fulfill all our apparel needs. We have been with Debi since last season. We can say that she has excellent customer service. Last season she did the impossible by fulfilling our 48 home and 48 away uniforms in two weeks. From the start, she insured our owner Gregory Hollinger that all our apparel needs will be met in a timely and efficient manner. Since then we have reached heights that most NFL and College teams are meeting. We broke the barrier this year by changing our uniform style to the Gridiron pattern, which is mostly worn by the NFL and College level. She manufactured our new look. She is an excellent business woman that we will recommend to any team that is in need of uniforms or any other apparel. We also we like to inform all our fans, supporters, players, staff, sponsors, and partners that she will be also manufacturing our fan jerseys this year also. On behalf of our organization and team we want to thank Debi for all the hard work and great customer service that she has done for us. Thank you Debi. We are grateful to be in business with you.
Having played professional football for over 10 years, and now commissioning my own developmental league, I can say I know a thing or two about jerseys. The quality of the Defender Sportz jerseys and pants are top notch! They remind me of the quality I wore when I played in the NFL and CFL. Top that off with excellent customer service you can't go wrong. Worth every penny!
As we update our website we are going to recognize the amazing businesses that have helped us to this point so far.
