DeSmet Jesuit High School notified parents Sunday about the death of a student. Senior cornerback Adrian Bowman died Sunday, less that a week after announcing his intent to play football for Lindenwood University next fall. A cause of death hasn't been released.
DeSmet football coach Pat Mahoney spoke Fox 2 News about Bowman's death. "He was absolutely one of the toughest, most aggressive kids that I've coached in my entire career, just a great teammate," Mahoney said. "Several of the player on our team, they've been together since sixth grade, fifth grade playing, so they've known each other virtually their entire lives."
School officials opened the campus chapel Sunday night, making counselors available to students and families. Counselors will also be available on Monday.

ST. LOUIS (AP) - A grieving father's personal appeal to Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has prompted the social network to release a retrospective video tribute of the man's deceased 21-year-old son.
John Berlin of suburban St. Louis posted a YouTube message to Zuckerberg on Wednesday seeking a copy of Facebook's new "look back" video feature for his late son, Jesse, who died in January 2012.
The automated tool creates a 62-second video using photos and comments previously posted by Facebook users. The YouTube plea has since drawn more than 1.1 million views.
Facebook typically disables the accounts of people who have died. But the company said in a statement Thursday that Berlin's request "moved us to take action" and suggested Facebook might alter its policies on information posted by users who later died.
Legislation that would limit the ability of cities and counties to restrict cellphone towers is a step close to being law in Missouri...again.
State senators approved a series of bill Thursday that would reinstate many of the provisions of a 2013 law that were struck down in court for violating the single-subject requirement of the state constitution. Lawmakers split the measures into five separate bills this time around.
The legislation is aimed at creating uniform standards for communications companies expanding cellphone and Internet services.
Many cities oppose the rules over conflicts with their own zoning and land-use regulations.
