The Miami Dolphins announced they have nominated former Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Football Assistant Coach Aaron Feis for the Don Shula NFL High School Coach of the Year Award. Feis was killed by gunfire at the school on Feb. 14, 2018.

Feis was one of 17 individuals, who were killed when a gunman opened fire at the Parkland, Florida school. He was credited as a hero for attempting to stop the gunman when others ran to safety.

Each team nominates one coach in their region. The winner of this year’s award will be named at the Pro Bowl in Orlando, Florida on Jan. 27.
