The Original PROFENDER was invented by Tony Devine, a teacher and coach, while looking for a basketball training device for his son Devon. While searching online, he became very frustrated with the gimmicky types of products displayed on the internet. After an endless search he realized that all of the products had one fault in common, they were all stationary devices that did not simulate real game situations. He set out to create a basketball training aid that would simulate real game situations and after years of building a prototype and testing materials The Original PROFENDER was born.
