Florida high school football coach reportedly shot while shielding students from gunman

As an ex-student at a Florida high school allegedly opened fire Wednesday on his previous classmates, a football coach on the school reportedly risked his own lifestyle to avoid wasting those all over him.

Coach Aaron Feis, used to be a stability guard at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, jumped in front of college students to shield them within the suspected gunman, 19-year-old Nikolas Cruz, as outlined by the Miami Herald.

The Broward County Sheriff’s Office mentioned that a football mentor died while in the taking pictures. It’s unclear if Feis is mentor.

Learners and players took to social media Wednesday to specific their gratitude and problem for your football mentor.

Feis graduated the school in 1999, and in 2002 joined the junior varsity soccer workforce as head mentor, in accordance with a bio posted for the school’s website.
