Los Angeles Chargers defensive tackle Corey Liuget will present a $10,000 donation to the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School football team today to create a scholarship fund honoring a football coach killed in the massacre at the school in Parkland, Fla.

The scholarship funded by the Coach Aaron Feis Scholarship Fund will go to a graduating member of the football team who exhibits characteristics representative of who Feis was and the traits he valued, Liuget said.

The scholarship recipient should have a big heart, a great work ethic, great character, put the team and others before themselves, be generous, have at least 2.5 GPA and graduate in the top half of his class, Liuget said.

The amount of the scholarship will be left to the discretion of the school, football coaching staff and Feis family, Liuget said.

Liuget, who was raised in Hialeah, Florida, will present the donation to the team at Pine Trails Park in Parkland. He will dedicate his time to the team this afternoon, offering it his support and prayers and leading players in a workout, his spokeswoman said.

Feis, an assistant football coach and security guard, was shot and killed as he shielded two students on Feb. 14.
