COPPELL (CBSDFW.COM) – A football player from Coppell High School student is missing after diving from a cliff into Possum Kingdom Lake on Sunday afternoon.
Jacob Logan, a 17-year-old senior at Coppell High School, was on a trip with friends and teammates when the incident occurred. Witnesses said that he resurfaced at least once after making the 60-foot jump, before never being seen again.
A search was conducted without any results. It picked up again on Monday morning with seven divers in the water, three from the City of Graham and four from the Brazos River Authority. The water ranges from 25 to 80 feet deep, and visibility is very low, according to Brazos River Authority officials.
Coppell High School Stadium hosted a prayer vigil on Sunday evening for the missing teen. More than 300 people gathered on the football field. “He was one of those kids,” said Coppell parent Kim James. “I was sitting up there watching him play football. I’m like, that guy’s going somewhere. He is going somewhere. You could just tell he was just one of those kids. I think, one of those stars, bright stars, that burn so bright… and then they die young.”
Logan is a wide receiver on the school’s football team. The trip to Possum Kingdom Lake was a celebration of the team’s win on Friday night.
“He was one of my best friends growing up,” said Coppell student Tyler Jones. “Tough to grasp. He was Superman. He was the best at everything he ever did — best football player, best basketball player, best baseball player.”
