Mike Farrell, a Penn State and Shady Side Academy graduate, will get a chance to make a favorable impression on NFL teams on Jan. 11.

The 6-foot-6, 306-pound offensive tackle has been selected to play in the Casino del sol College All-Star game in Tucson, Ariz.

Farrell is one of a handful of Penn State players who will suit up in a postseason All-Star game, joining defensive tackle Jordan Hill (Senior Bowl), outside linebacker Gerald Hodges (East-West Shrine Game), fullback Michael Zordich (NFLPA Collegiate Bowl) and quarterback Matt McGloin (Texas vs. Nation Game).

Farrell was an All-Big Ten honorable mention pick by the conference coaches and media after starting every game in 2012 and helping Penn State's offense produce a 3,000-yard passer and a 1,000-yard rusher.

Farrell is set to leave for Arizona on Sunday, and he will practice all week before playing in the Jan. 11 game.
