Lutz, FL -- A star-studded event Saturday helped raise awareness about boater safety.

Boating accident survivor Nick Schuyler hosted a football tournament with the help of Tony Dungy, Michael Pittman, and some WWE stars to benefit the charities of Marquis Cooper, Will Bleakley, and Corey Smith.

Those three men were lost at sea during a boating accident about a year ago.

Will's father, Bob Bleakley was one of today's spectators and says he wasn't surprised there were some big names at the 32-team event.

"Corey and Marquis was a great friend of mine-- both of them. I played with them in the NFL for a few years and trying to support whatever I can- sign autographs, maybe play football with a couple of guys just come out here and have a good time," said Former Buc Michael Pittman.

Schuyler says he was glad to see so many come out and show their support.
