The family has gotten considerably more from Buccaneers receiver Mike Evans.
Via ESPN, Evans has donated $11,000 to the family.
The contribution to the GoFundMe.com page pushed the total collected north of $100,000.
Officers responding to a complaint about loud music confronted the 30-year-old Hill.
Police claimed that he pointed a gun at them as he lowered his garage door.
An unloaded gun was found in Hill’s pocket, and his blood-alcohol concentration was 0.40 percent.
After a two-week trial, a jury awarded each of Hill’s children $1.
By also finding Hill 99 percent responsible for his demise, the one-percent responsibility that was placed on law enforcement reduced the award to one cent for each of the four children.
