My name is Bryan Yates. I just had the honor of being appointed Mountain West Supervisor of Umpires Baseball-Softball. I am 50 years of age and have been umpiring baseball and softball for the last 16 years. I have been married to my beautiful wife (Jeanann) for the last 28 years. She is the current Principal at Pisgah Elementary School in the Enka Candler area. We have a son (Taylor) 23 who attends ETSU and is now entering his last semester working toward his bachelors degree in Criminal Justice. I am very excited about the days to come and look forward to working with each and everyone. I have a lot to learn, but I also have a lot to offer. I look forward to us being able to grow together. 2017 is going to be an exciting time for the Mountain West area schools when they see what we have to offer them!
