Flag football tourney benefits fallen officers

ESTERO, Fla. -- Southwest Florida came together this weekend to celebrate and honor law enforcement, four months after Fort Myers police officer Adam Jobbers-Miller was killed in the line of duty.

Teams from across the area came out to participate in the PNC Bank Blue Bowl at Estero High School on Saturday.  Even team members from Fox 4 were out to support the cause.

Team Platinum Real Estate took home the championship trophy.

Rosemary Zore is the founder of the organization The Fallen Officers . Her father died in the line of duty, and she couldn't be happier with the tournament’s turnout. 

Congressman Francis Rooney and Florida gubernatorial candidate Ron DeSantis both attended the event.

Next year she hopes to name it after Officer Adam Jobbers-Miller.
