Lions to hold memorial service for former DE Smith

ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- The Detroit Lions will hold a memorial service for former defensive lineman Corey Smith on Saturday.

The service is scheduled to begin at noon at St. Paul's Baptist Church in Richmond, Va.

Smith, a free agent who played the past three seasons for the Lions, was one of three men lost in the Gulf of Mexico after their 21-foor boat capsized during a Feb. 28 fishing trip. There was one survivor.

Smith's family has established the Corey D. Smith Memorial Scholarship Fund.
