TO REQUEST THE DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION NAME THE PORTION OF OLD ORANGEBURG ROAD IN SUMMERVILLE FROM ITS INTERSECTION WITH BUTTERNUT ROAD WESTWARD TO ITS INTERSECTION WITH WILLOW OAKS LANE "COACH PAT EIDSON WAY" AND ERECT APPROPRIATE MARKERS OR SIGNS ALONG THIS PORTION OF HIGHWAY CONTAINING THIS DESIGNATION.
Whereas, members of the General Assembly are pleased to learn that Pat Eidson, Pinewood Preparatory School boys basketball head coach, recorded his 800th career victory when the Panthers defeated Woodland High School 60-52 on January 28, 2017; and
Whereas, Pat Eidson becomes the second coach in state history to reach 800 career wins; and
Whereas, Eidson, in his twenty-seventh season as Pinewood Prep boys basketball coach, has won eight state titles during his thirty-eight-year coaching career. Eidson picked up wins 300, 400, 500, 600, and 700 during his tenure at Pinewood Prep. His 700th win came in the Rotary Roundball Classic during the 2011-2012 season; and
Whereas, the only other boys basketball coach in state history to record at least 800 wins is John Smith, who retired from Great Falls High School with 943 career victories. The 60-year-old Eidson shows no signs of letting up; and
Whereas, it would be fitting and proper to forever capture this moment in history by naming a portion of Old Orangeburg Road in the Town of Summerville in honor of this coaching legend. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That members of the General Assembly request the Department of Transportation name the portion of Old Orangeburg Road in Summerville from its intersection with Butternut Road westward to its intersection with Willow Oaks Lane "Coach Pat Eidson Way" and erect appropriate markers or signs along this portion of highway containing this designation.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the Department of Transportation.
