Jeff. What will happen with Mauti? I know he can't play because of the injury, but will he get an invitation as a recognition of his deserving to be in an all star game? Would they fly him to a game even though he couldn't play?
Matt McGloin has accepted an invite to play in the Texas vs. The Nation game, which will be held Feb. 2 in Allen, Texas.
Michael Zordich will play in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, scheduled for Jan. 19 in Carson, Calif.
Good for Matt, nice to see him get to a senior game.
Gerald Hodges and Matt Stankiewitch will play in the East-West Shrine Game, set for 4 p.m. on Jan. 19 in St. Petersburg, Fla.
Just wondering, what is the pecking order of these games? I assume the Senior Bowl is the most prestigious.
“We need to keep this (expletive) together,” Mauti and Zordich to Hill
I've always thought it was:
Senior Bowl > E-W Shrine Game > Everything else.
I will be at the Senior Bowl rooting on Jordan.
Pete Massaro will join Stanley and Zordich in the NFLPA Collegiate Bowl, this coming Saturday in Carson, Calif.
Senior bowl is by far and away the most prestigious of all the Senior All-Star games, and it's really not even close.
Mauti definitely would have been there if not for the injury. Hodges was prob a borderline guy. I think he has the talent to play in the SB, and I'm a little surprised he wasn't chosen after looking over the roster. It's not exactly a who's who of LBs.
BTW, the CBs in the SB are Sick!

ESPN guys just had some nice things to say about Zordich in te NFLPA College bowl practice. Complimented his pedigree and dedication to the game.
Zordich is practicing on Espnu right now.
Don't want to give up too much since it was an Insider article, but McShay had some nice things to say about Massaro's motor and special teams potential based on today's practice.
Zordich got some good love from the announcers at practice. Raved about his leadership, special teams ability, and that he's a football player. Said he has been working on his hands.
If you get a chance check out Jasper Collins from Mount Union at this game. Another good D3 wide out from Mount Union
@meyer 4 prez I'm glad Bill K and Alex G keeps it real with us, instead of getting our hopes up.
Any updates from EW Shrine? I was over-ruled on watching the game in my own house smh. NFL Net is only on one TV... So im watching the other game on ESPN... Did Hodges play?
WE ARE! And we will always be...
Watched first half and don't remember seeing him. Saw Stank, looked good.
Nice. I can see him being a factor on an NFL roster. Kid works at it. With quality coaching he can do some things.
no, tv or streaming web for me guys so if you hear something about how the SRs did please post it. TIA.

Yeah I was at my God son's birthday party....long story short, Monsters Inc. was on the tv..
Monsters Inc would be way better than the game...
Draftcountdown.com posted Jordan Hill's official measurements for the senior bowl:
6'1", 294, 32 inch arms,10 inch hands and 79 inch wing span.
Weigh-In Results from the 2013 Senior Bowl in Mobile, Alabama from Scott Wright of Draft Countdown
if I'm not mistaken those are pretty long arms and wing span for a guy 6'1''.
Not a senior bowl, but I didn't want to make a new thread for just one update. But the Core 6 athletes (lots of kids from around Illinois or so) are working out today in Indianapolis. One PSU related update so far (and corresponding tBB thread attached):
Gerry Hamilton: "2014 Ath. Porter Ontko has some of the best feet here. Very athletic - short space quicks. Dad played at Penn State"
(he attached a picture too, it's on page 2 of the thread)
CHICAGO- 247Sports is live at the Core 6 workout in the Windy City.
Had no idea Ontko was a PSU legacy.
I hear he's a hell of a player. Would love to have a kid like him in the secondary.

Steve had a story in early December about Ontko and his PSU ties.
Lisle (Ill.) Benet Academy 2014 S/WR Porter Ontko is a Penn State legacy excited to be hearing from the Nittany Lions.
