Lions to hold memorial service for Smith
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.
