FORT WORTH (1080 KRLD) - People can honor the memory of Fort Worth Corporal Garrett Hull this weekend, by going to watch some flag football.

The Blue Bowl is a day long tournament, which raised money for the Hull family through sponsors and team registration fees. A percentage of the funds raised also goes toward the Robert Zore Foundation, which helps fallen officers' families.

"Everyone loves football," says the foundation's founder Rosemary Zore. "We thought that was one of the easiest ways to bring the community together, to honor Garrett's sacrifice for his community, to help people see police officers are just like you and I."

The Hull family has also set up a memorial scholarship, to be awarded each year. Its first recipient is Brittany Salazar, a recent graduate of Keller High School. Her father is also a Fort Worth police officer. 

The Blue Bowl starts at 8:30 Saturday morning, with a memorial service, speakers, and music before the tournament begins.

It's at Farrington Field in Fort Worth, and is free to go and watch.​
