On Friday during the homecoming pep rally, Erath Principal Marc Turner surprised Coach Tommie Pillette (right) by showing him what was painted on the gym floor. It turned out to be “Coach P Court” named after long-time Erath coach, Coach Pillette. Pillette has been coaching sports, including basketball, at Erath for more than 30 years. Turner still has to get the final approval from the school board at the next meeting. (photo by Missy Rosa)
