Although they didn't keep in touch much after high school, Mackman said he remembers Feis as a people person and a football fanatic. He played football at the school before graduating in 1999 and going straight into coaching there.

Officials said Cruz brought an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and several magazines of ammunition to the school. They said he was shot while shielding students from the gunfire.
"I heard Aaron say, "No, that is not firecrackers", May told the Sun Sentinel of Feis" response to the initial call on the school's security walkie-talkies. He was among those who first responded to the popping sounds in the halls, which some mistook for firecrackers. "That's the last I heard of him". He began coaching at Douglas in 2002, where he spent 8 years as the head coach of the junior varsity team.
"He was a great guy", sophomore Douglas lineman Gage Gaynor told the newspaper. Many Twitter users posted a picture of Feis, and said that they choose to focus their time and energy honoring him, rather than dissecting the shooter's personal story.
