Tributes are pouring in for the high school football player who rushed a school shooter, sacrificing his own life to save his classmates.

Tate Myre, 16, alongside 17-year-old Madisyn Baldwin and 14-year-old Hanna St. Julian have been identified the three young victims who died in the shooting at Oxford High School in Michigan on Tuesday.

Myre, who was a talented running back for the Oxford Wildcats football team, was killed while trying to disarm the shooter.

One tribute said:

We teach our kids to be tough, to stand up – to fight. This kid did it on the football field and he did it today in the moment of truth. This kid is a hero – my heart is empty yet full at the same time. Life is a precious gift folks. RIP Tate Myre. Kearsley football won’t forget

A petition has now been set up to rename the local football stadium in his honor.
