    Roger Pierce, who is helping Allison McDowell coach LaRue County High School’s boys’ and girls’ tennis teams this spring, hasn’t walked the traditional path to coaching that most coaches have trod.
    “I played football, basketball and baseball in high school, but was never on a tennis court until a friend of mine introduced me to the sport while we were in the military,” the 62-year-old Elizabethtown resident said.  
    Later, while working for the state government in Hart County, he resumed the sport recreationally.
