Career Highlights

  • Played a total of 115 games.

Dan Yochum began his outstanding career as a collegiate football player at the University of Syracuse, where he received an honourable mention on the UPI and AP All-American teams in 1972. Yochum was a second round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League (NFL) in 1971. But instead of playing in the NFL, Yochum opted to play in Canada and joined the Montreal Alouettes.

Yochum joined the Alouettes in 1972 as an Offensive Tackle and played nine seasons with them, where he won many awards and honours throughout his playing career.

Yochum finished his Canadian Football League (CFL) career as a member of the Edmonton Eskimos, but an injury kept him from partcipating in the 1980 Grey Cup versus the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. In 2000, Yochum was named to the PA New Jersey All-Millennium Top 100, as well as being named a Pennsylvania sports legend.

Inducted into the Canadian Football Hall of Fame and Museum in 2004 as a player.
