The Eagles won 23-6 over the South Broward High School Bulldogs Friday night in the first of five games at home over the course of the 2018 regular season.
In a bittersweet return to their home turf without assistant coach Aaron Feis, each player donned the number 17 on their helmets. The number was painted on the field. A framed photograph of Feis and a No. 17 jersey was displayed below a proud eagle statue. And a banner with the words "Fearless, Emotion, Intensity, Sacrifice" was displayed in an acrostic next to a photo of Feis, a tribute to the assistant coach.
Feis, who graduated from the program and worked with the team while also serving as a security guard at the school, was hailed a hero after shielding several students from the gunfire during the Feb. 14 tragedy.
