Cavalier quarterback Marc Verica will have another opportunity to hit the football field, as the Wahoo signal caller has been selected to play in the Eastham Energy All-Star Game in Tempe, Arizona. Verica will join some of the best players from the six BCS conferences in the event.

Verica finished his career sixth on the UVa career list with 4,992 passing yards, while notching 2,799 passing yards in 2010. Verica's passing mark in 2010 trails only Matt Schaub's 2,976 yards in 2002 and his 2,952 yards in 2003 for most passing yards in a season at Virginia. The quarterback set the UVa standard for passing yards in a game when he threw for 417 yards at Duke on November 6.

Verica concludes his career third in completions with 487. The signal caller also finished third at UVa with 14 career 200-yard passing games, including eight in 2010. Verica's six-straight games with 200 or more passing yards in 2008 tied him with Schaub for a program best streak.

His senior year saw Verica throw 14 touchdown passes along with 14 interceptions.

The Eastham Energy All-Star Game will kickoff on January 23 at Sun Devil Stadium in Tempe, Arizona, at 7:30 pm ET.
