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.
