Assistant football coach Aaron Feis is being hailed a hero, as reports have come out that he shielded students from bullets when a gunman opened fire at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School on Wednesday.
The Miami Herald writes:
In addition to coaching football, Feis worked as a security guard at the school for at least eight years and took his role protecting students very seriously, said Andrew Hofmann, a former student at the school who recently coached the swimming and water polo teams.
Hofmann described the coach as “a quiet person” with a good sense of humor. “When there’s a funny joke, he is always laughing for sure,” he said.
Feis graduated from Stoneman Douglas High in 1999 and worked at the school for his entire coaching career, according to his bio on the school’s website.
