Ray Ellis played seven seasons in the NFL for the Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles. Ellis is proud to have played for legendary Ohio State coach, Woody Hayes, who taught him that “the great thing about football is that when you get knocked down, you get up and go again.”

Ellis and PSL own the exclusive rights to PNE’s Handle Your Business, a four-hour broadcast designed to profile successful athletes and the challenges associated with transitioning from sports
