MIAMI (AP)The football team at a Florida high school where 17 people were killed in a mass shooting will get a taste of what it’s like to play in the Super Bowl.

Parkland’s Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School football team will be stand-ins as the network tests camera angles for the live broadcast. The Super Bowl will be played Feb. 2 in Miami.

The team will experience the excitement of running out of the tunnel onto the game field and running plays to determine which camera angles need to be adjusted three days before the Super Bowl.

Coach Quentin Short said the players are very excited. The Sun Sentinel reports the team is coming off of one of its best seasons in history last year, going 8-2 and winning Florida’s District 13-8A title.

Assistant football coach Aaron Feis and athletic director Chris Hixon were killed in the Feb. 14, 2018 shooting.
