Here's a little bit about Eric: My name is Eric Bates. I’m originally from Michigan and grew up in Illinois. I have my undergraduate degree in economics with a minor in Business Administration from Western Kentucky University. I also have my Master’s degree from Western Kentucky University in recreation and sports administration. I am a licensed secondary math teacher for grades 6-12, and this is my fourth year as a teacher. Before teaching I worked in higher education and behavioral health totaling over ten years of experience working with children and teenagers. I have six years experience working in higher education.
Some of the things I like to do in my free time are mentoring youth, playing sports, working out, traveling, coaching and spending time with family.

As far as soccer goes, I have no favorite teams, I’ll watch any soccer team play.
