MPOD is a highly recognized trademark of the sports apparel company Make Plays Or Die, and one of the core components of the Make Plays Or Die brand. The slogan was coined in 2005 during a Cardinal Mooney High School football game in Youngstown, OH. The two founders of the brand, Desmond Marrow and Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, credit the inspiration to their love for the game of football and motivation to fulfill their dreams. “Our motto on the field was ‘We need to make plays or die,’” Johnson-Koulianos said. “Basically, if we don’t do our job and make plays, we’re not going to win, losing was dying to us.”, he passionately added. Marrow and Johnson-Koulionas later brought on marketing wiz Kevin Moses Jr as Co-Owner of the brand to help bring their brilliant ideas to life! In many Make Plays Or Die-related situations, MPOD appears alongside the Make Plays Or Die tick logo, known as the EKG.
