In a public Facebook post, his dad said his son took his own life by climbing the fence at the top of the stadium and jumping.

His dad says West had long battled depression.

His friends say the West they knew was funny and always happy.

“I saw him every single day and every single day he had a smile on his face,” said Broken Arrow junior Ethan Bonham. “You truly never know what someone's going through on the inside.”

Broken Arrow Schools say students who need support can go to the high school media center from 3-5 p.m.

The district will also have counselors on campus Monday and says they will be available for as long as students need.
