ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) - A 17-year-old was killed after he crashed his dirt bike while practicing at Sunshine Motocross track near St. Petersburg.

Pinellas County emergency officials tell the Tampa Bay Times (http://bit.ly/1tRahjO) that Devin Chester crashed Thursday while riding.

Devin was a junior at Osceola High School, which offered grief counseling for students Friday. The football team planned a tribute during its game Friday night.

Michael Chester said his son went to Daytona and raced the best young motocross riders in the nation on a standard bike.

Grief spread on Twitter among Devin’s friends and classmates.
