DJ Yokley
Founder/President/CEO

@djyokley

DJ grew up in the small town of East Palestine, OH. It was there that he discovered that hard work and passion would drive him wherever he went. A stand-out baseball player at EPHS, DJ also had his heart set on becoming a broadcaster. He served as the announcer for sports and assemblies through high school, then pursued a degree in Broadcast Communications at Westminster College (New Wilmington, PA.)

Yokley then spent 6 years on the local news scene wearing many hats (videographer, journalist, editor, graphic designer, reporter, and sports reporter) before making the jump in careers to marketing and sales on the national level. It was there where he realized that being able to be a utility player in business would one day land him a company of his own.

DJ is excited to bring YSN to life with the help of his teammates. His heart beats for small towns, and schools who come together and root for their local teams and events. A business owner already, he knows that supporting local activities and sports is the responsibility that sustains a great relationship in towns and cities (large and small.) Bringing these two components back together in unison is going to be a challenge, but one he greatly looks forward to.

What DJ enjoys most is spending time with his wife, Sarah, and being a dad.

Why Sports is important to DJ:

It teaches life lessons before life has the chance to educate us. How to win, how to lose, playing hurt, hot/cold streaks, hard work doesn’t always get rewarded, but most of all being resilient will bring you closest to where you want to be.
