Assistant Football Coach Aaron Feis Among Florida School Shooting Victims
Football coach Aaron Feis is among the victims identified in the Florida school shooting that took place on Wednesday.
Sports Illustrated reports that Feis was the assistant football coach and security guard at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Fla.
He is one of seventeen people killed by a former student who attacked the school. Feis passed away Thursday morning.
Head coach Willis May calls Feis a “big ol’ teddy bear.”
He also said of Feis:
“Hardcore – he coached hard. Real good line. He did a great job with the [offensive] line. He took pride with working with those guys. Loyalty – I trusted him. He had my back. He worked hard. Just a good man. Loved his family. Loved his brother – just an excellent family man.”
Feis leaves behind a wife and daughter.
