TUSCON, Ariz. - University of Findlay senior quarterback Clay Belton (Dayton, Ohio/Northmont) and Ohio Dominican University senior offensive tackle Tyler White (Cincinnati, Ohio) will represent Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletics Conference (GLIAC) in the second annual Casino Del Sol College All-Star Game at Kino Stadium in Tucson, Ariz., on Friday, Jan. 11.

The game will be broadcast on the ESPN family of networks and available to watch live on ESPN3 and Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. (MT).

Last year's game featured six players who would be selected in the NFL draft, while 61 other players were on NFL training camp rosters.

Belton threw for a school record 2,329 yards during his final year to go along with 15 touchdown passes.  He averaged 232.9 yards per game through the air and completed 58.2 percent of his passing attempts.

He ended his two-year career ranked second all-time at UF in passing yards (4,368), pass completions (356) and pass attempts (626).

White was a First Team All-GLIAC pick in 2012 and a nominee for the Gene Upshaw Award as one of the best linemen in the country as the Panthers finished with an 8-3 record. He helped key an offense that broke several school records in 2012, including most rushing yards in a season, rushing touchdowns and yards per carry. He was part of an offensive line unit that also allowed just six sacks in 2012, the fifth fewest in the nation.

Overall, the Panthers ranked 13th nationally in rushing offense (244.9 yards per game), 12th in scoring offense (40.8 points per game) and eighth in passing efficiency (161.0). ODU was also 27th in total offense with 452.8 yards per game.

A Second Team All-GLIAC selection in 2011, White started 41 games in his Ohio Dominican career.
