Eighteen months after the tragic drowning of Jha’kyric Nixon, Coppell High School’s Class of 2013 is hurting again, with football standout Jacob Logan missing after a diving incident yesterday afternoon at Possum Kingdom Lake.
My son, Jordan, who’s away at the Marine Military Academy, has been a buddy of Jacob’s since the third grade. He’s reeling from the news, as is everyone in the close-knit community of Coppell. Last night, teammates and other high school students flocked to the football field for a prayer vigil, followed by another at Irving Bible Church.
The search resumed for Jacob this morning, after divers were unable to locate him yesterday. He and some friends were at the lake Sunday for a birthday celebration.
Jacob is a wide receiver for the Coppell Cowboys, currently ranked No. 3 nationally by MaxPreps.
