Sean Farrell played Guard for Penn State from 1978 through 1981, part of the team that went 10-2 in 1981 and laid the ground work for Joe Paterno's first nationally recognized National Championship in 1982.
In his senior year, Farrell was a finalist for the Lombardi and Outland awards, given to the nation's best lineman or linebacker and interior lineman, respectively; not unexpectedly, he ended up losing out to Dave Rimington of Nebraska for both.
Farrell was named an All-American by The Football News his junior season, and by Walter Camp, The Football News, Football Coaches, Football Writers, Associated Press, United Press International, NEA, and The Sporting News in 1981.
He was selected in the first round (seventeenth overall) by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the 1982 draft, and went on to play ten seasons in the NFL before retiring after the 1992 season.
