COPPELL, Texas — Grief counselors are at a North Texas school after a standout high school football player disappeared while diving from cliffs into a lake.

Search crews on Monday resumed looking for the body of 17-year-old Jacob Logan, a wide receiver for Coppell (kuh-PEHL') High School, one of the state's top-ranked teams. The senior was reported missing Sunday afternoon after not surfacing from Possum Kingdom Lake, about 80 miles west of Fort Worth.

Friends say Logan jumped from a cliff into the water, briefly resurfaced and then disappeared. Officials believe Logan had been with some other youths at a house near the lake.

Logan scored a touchdown Friday night as Coppell beat Hebron 29-3. Coppell is ranked No. 4 in the latest Associated Press Class 5A football poll.
