Hero Football Coach Dies After Shielding Students From Florida School Shooter

In fact, he also worked as a security guard at the school, reported CNN.

The football team added on Twitter, "He selflessly shielded students from the shooter when he was shot".

Aaron Feis, an assistant football coach and part-time security guard, was named as a victim by the high school football team's Twitter account.

As new details emerge about what happened inside Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel spoke of the impact Feis had on the local community.

Within hours of reports that Feis had died, Goodell's Tweet went out Thursday morning.

"It is with Great sadness that our Football Family has learned about the death of Aaron Feis", the statement reads. Although the football coach was taken to hospital with critical injuries, he succumbed to his wounds.

"Their job is when we have an altercation or a fight or anything, they're on their golf carts and they're there immediately and they are dealing with the situation", he said. But after the students made it inside, he was shot.

"He covered kids and took the gunshots for them", she said. Aaron Fies, YOU ARE A HERO.

- Athletes In HS (@AthIetesInHS) February 15, 2018We should be saying the names of the fallen and heroes like Aaron Feis, not the inadequate cowards who kill innocent Americans.

"My heart is broken". Our children. Our country.

A student at the school told reporters, "We all thought it was a fire drill because we had one previously today".

"Some heroes wear Gatorade towels over their shoulders".

Witnesses said when the gunfire broke out, Feis quickly draped himself over students, acting as a human shield. Feis was married with one daughter.

"Big ol' teddy bear", May shared.

"It's hard to be AD and a coach but he did it because he just loved it so much", May said. He was an incredible person, and I am alive today because of him. He had my back.

Another student says her geography teacher was shot shielding her and her classmates inside his classroom. "I will forever remember you my sweet angel", her color guard instructor, Manuel Miranda told the Miami Herald. She says he later died.
