Don Piccolo Floor Commemoration

We are raising $7,000 for three components of the commemoration:

  1. 1982 State Championship TrophyPainting “Don Piccolo Court” on both halves of the court inside Van Pool Gymnasium.
  2. Replacing the 1982 State Championship Trophy. The trophy has for decades has been missing from the gym’s trophy case.  The official maker of the trophies has agreed to re-create a 1982 version of the championship trophy for NWC.
  3. Large Bronze Plaque in Gym Lobby. Coach Piccolo’s many Vanpool Plaque achievements will be listed in a bronze plaque that will be topped by a classic picture of Pic. The relief rendering will be placed alongside the plaque celebrating the achievements of Don Van Pool, NWC’s coach from 1958-71, and in whose honor the gym was named following his 1983 induction into the Oklahoma Coaches Hall of Fame.
