Eliud was brought in by Southwestern University scouts after he was discovered playing in small leagues in his hometown of Camotes Island – a group of islands that form part of the province of Cebu. But his flourishing three-year career at Southwestern came to an abrupt end in 2009 when he was caught – ironically – moonlighting in a small league in the province or larong labas. The offense led to a lifetime ban from the Cebu Schools Athletic Foundation Inc. (CESAFI).

The CESAFI ban led Poligrates to bounce from one Cebu commercial team to another, suiting up for M. Lhuillier, Mandaue Landmasters, and MisOr Meteors in Liga Pilipinas. Then came the chance to play in Manila and join Cagayan Valley in the PBA D-League after Rising Suns officials spotted him playing - to no one's surprise - in another larong-labas.
