Elliot Bates plays on the offensive line for the Akron Zips. Elliot is one of the best lineman that is on the Zips roster thanks to his large size and leadership.

In 2006 Elliot Bates saw some game time action playing in the match-ups against North Texas and Buffalo.

In the 2007 season, Elliot Bates’ sophomore season, he really began to shine as an offensive lineman. Head Coach J.D. Brookhart played Elliot in five games, staring him in two games. Elliot Bates’ first college start came as a surprise, when starter Mike Schepp was injured in a Thursday practice, and Elliot received one Friday walk-through practice before going in to replace the hurt Schepp. Elltiot Bates pulled through for the University of Akron though, helping them to beat rivals Kent State and win back the Wagon Wheel with a 27-20 victory. In the 2008 season, Elliot played in all twelve games and really earned his place in the Akron Zips roster. Elliot Bates is looking forward to playing in the 2009 season and can not wait for the match-up against Kent State.
