It is with Great sadness that our Football Family has learned about the death of Aaron Feis. He was our Assistant Football Coach and security guard. He selflessly shielded students from the shooter when he was shot. He died a hero and he will forever be in our hearts and memories

There are a mix of adults and students who were killed during the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Twelve people were killed inside the school. Two were killed just outside the school, and one was shot on a nearby street. Two others died at a local hospital. It's not clear where Feis was during the shooting.

The head football coach said he heard Feis respond to the call on the school security radios. Someone asked if those were firecrackers. Feis said, "No, that's not firecrackers" and that's the last thing people heard from him.
