Tennessee’s Cooper Mays takes a ride through ZIPS Car Wash

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — This episode of Car Wash Convos features the Tennessee Volunteers senior offensive lineman.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — ZIPS Car Wash announced in a press release that its Car Wash Convos episode featuring Cooper Mays, senior offensive lineman for the Tennessee Volunteers, is now on YouTube.

Cooper is interviewed by former Tennessee student-athlete Kenzie Couch who returns for Season 2 as ZIPS host of Car Wash Convos.

Couch hits the line with Mays to find out his take on the best barbeque, his uniform preferences and who he’s choosing to go up against on the field, all as they experience a carwash at ZIPS in Knoxville.

“I’m honored to be featured in Car Wash Convos alongside some of the biggest names in college sports representing universities across the country,” said Mays. “This is truly a fun way for me to share with fans a little of my off the field personality.”

Cooper’s career speaks for itself as he continues to serve as Tennessee’s starting center for the third straight season.

He’s also continuing a family legacy in his role on the team as he lined up alongside his brother, Cade, on the Vols offensive line from 2020-21; his father, Kevin, was an All-SEC guard in 1994.

Off the field, Cooper shines as a two-time SEC Academic Honor Roll recipient.

He’s played in 38 games with 30 starts, all at center, and he’s seen action on 1,992 career offensive snaps, allowing only four sacks.

“Part of the reason we approached NIL with the concept of Car Wash Convos is for fans to get a glimpse into the off the field lives of their favorite student-athletes and this episode is certainly full of insight into Cooper’s life,” said Rebecca Latacz, chief marketing officer, ZIPS Car Wash. “Cooper’s drive for excellence, determination and academic successes make him a great representative of our brand and we’re grateful for the opportunity to support Cooper, the Vols and the entire Vol nation,” she added. 

Car Wash Convos will feature three additional student-athletes from the University of Tennessee this academic year with a combined student-athlete roster of 22 male and female student-athletes representing six universities for Season 2.

ZIPS’ student-athlete roster was secured through a collaboration between LEARFIELD – the media and technology company powering college sports and the universities’ athletics multimedia rights holder – and NIL marketplace leader Opendorse.

Season 1 resulted in more than 4 million impressions and over 2 million video views.

ZIPS is raising the bar in Season 2 by launching the ZIPS Fansgiving Sweepstakes across many of its school sponsorship markets.

ZIPS is selecting winners to receive a Cooper Mays signed poster, basketball tickets to four upcoming Tennessee men’s basketball games and ZIPS gift cards; 20 winners will be selected in all.
