The Elyria Athletics were an American football team based in Elyria, Ohio. They played in the Ohio League until 1919, then became an independent team. The team won the 1912 Ohio League championship in an upset over Peggy Parratt's Akron Pros.
In 1920, the team declined to join the APFA, later known as the National Football League; however, the Athletics did continue to play APFA teams, including a Thanksgiving game against the Columbus Panhandles. The team folded after the 1920 season.
