Our admin and staff are strong and we still have four other coaches in the building who are strong. Later in the day round 9 p.m., Broward Sheriff Scott Israel announced that a football coach had died, according to Miami Herald, but the coach was not named so it is not yet known if it was Feis.

"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. Assistant football coach and security guard Aaron Feis has been pronounced dead, after shielding a group of students from the shooter.

He had taken a job patrolling the grounds of the school as a security specialist, and in this capacity came within the gunman's range. The website of the football team at Marjory Stoneman Douglas said Feis graduated from the school in 1999 and worked mainly with the junior varsity.

May said Hixon, like Feis, is also a hero because he ran toward the scene to try to help others to safety.

A football coach "died a hero" after using his body as a shield to protect a student during the Florida high school massacre. "Among them we just got confirmation was my little cousin". "The kids in this community loved him, adored him". "Always gave his all to making us better", lineman Gage Gaynor said. "Definitely learned a lot from him". He made it home safely. "He worked after school, on the weekends, mowing lawns, just helping as many people as possible", Haab said.

According to some media outlets who were sent images from Cruz's Instagram page, the account had photos of a young man posing with guns and knives, his head covered with a balaclava - a knit mask that covers most of the head and face. He took pride with working with those guys.

Brotherly love seemed to infuse the life of Martin Duque, who local media described as a freshman whose older brother Miguel graduated from Douglas High past year. "[The coach] sprinted with everything he had towards it to make sure everybody was safe, and I heard that he got in front of a couple people and shielded them, and he actually took the bullets for them", one student told Fox News. That is awful that it would happen to anybody. Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School remains closed for the rest of this week, according to Broward County Public Schools Superintendent Robert Runcie.
