Jan 12, 2012, 10:56 PM | Updated: 11:00 pm

Three Arizona State football seniors will participate in
one more collegiate game, having accepted invitations to
play in their first post-season all-star games.

Linebacker Colin Parker, wide receiver Gerell Robinson and
offensive lineman Garth Gerhart are on rosters for three
separate games that will be played in January.

Parker will appear in the Casino Del Sol College All-Star
Game that takes place on Jan. 16 at Kino Stadium in
Tucson, Ariz. As a 2011 captain, Parker earned Honorable
Mention All-Pac-12 recognition, finishing the season with
a team-leading and career-high 75 tackles while tying for
third in the Pac-12 in forced fumbles with three. Parker,
who garnered Second Team Academic All-Pac-12 honors,
caught his first interception this past season against
Boise State in the MAACO Bowl Las Vegas and returned it
for 40 yards.

Gerhart, a 2011 Second Team All-Pac-12 honoree, will play
in the Senior Bowl on Jan. 28 in Mobile, Ala. He was a
starting center for the Sun Devils for the past two
seasons, but also saw action as a right and left guard.
The versatile lineman played in 39 career games and
started in 35.

Robinson will travel to St. Petersburg, Fla. to play in
the 87th East-West Shrine Game on Jan. 21. Past games have
included 63 NFL Hall of Famers and 52 players on active
NFL rosters. Robinson set a school record of 107.5
receiving yards per game and received 2011 Honorable
Mention All-Pac-12 honors. He finished the season with
1,397 yards, the second-highest single-season total in
school history, and also hit a career-high and a MAACO
Bowl record with 241 receiving yards.
