Douglas High School announces assistant coach Aaron Feis has died

"Coach Feis is a man of simple means who always puts himself before others", reads the message from Ben Gajus, who says all funds will go to the shooting victims. However, by 9 PM, Broward Sheriff Scott Israel announced that "a beloved football coach is dead". "He died a hero and he will forever be in our hearts and memories", the team's Twitter post said.

Douglas football coach Willis May told the Orlando Sentinel that he had heard Feis had jumped between a female student and the shooter, pushing her through a door and out of danger.

One of the early heroes from the deadly mass shooting at a Florida high school Wednesday was the school's assistant football coach.

NBN, streaming foray drag down Telstra profits
During the half, Telstra added about 57,000 retail bundled customers - one third of the bundles include entertainment packs. For the period, the telco added 235,000 retail mobile services - 130,000 postpaid handheld services, to 17.6 million.

Cruz, who was reportedly expelled last school year, is believed by police to have arrived Wednesday heavily armed before pulling a fire alarm and opening fire with an AR-15 rifle in the ensuing chaos.

According to the football program's tweet, Feis "selflessly shielded students from the shooter". BCSO investigators are working with Broward County Schools staff to identify all of the victims. The suspect was taken to a local hospital as a precaution for medical clearance. Mr Feis spent his entire coaching career at Marjory Stoneman after playing there as a student. In fact, he also worked as a security guard at the school, reported CNN. Someone asked on the radio if the loud sounds heard were firecrackers, according to May, who also carries a radio.

Feis' online biography at the team website said he played center at the school from 1995-98, and worked with both junior varsity and varsity lineman. After that, he coached the linemen for the JV and varsity teams and coordinates the players' college recruitment. "Definitely learned a lot from him".
