ST. LOUIS (AP) - Grief counselors at De Smet High School in suburban St. Louis are helping students following the death of a football standout at the school.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch (http://bit.ly/1cooHKd ) reports that senior defensive back Adrian Bowman was found dead on Sunday. He was 17 and circumstances surrounding his death have not been announced.

Bowman on Wednesday signed a letter of intent to play football at Lindenwood University.

A prayer vigil was also planned for Monday at De Smet, a Jesuit school.

De Smet coach Pat Mahoney says Bowman was fearless and tough, a great teammate.
