Fresno State senior wide receiver Josh Harper and safety Derron Smith both received invitations to participate in the 2015 Reese's Senior Bowl and the East-West Shrine Game, while senior cornerback Curtis Riley accepted his invitation to participate in the East-West Shrine Game. Both Harper and Smith have said they will wait until after the season to determine their off-season plans.

Josh Harper moved into third for receptions in Fresno State football history passing former teammate Isaiah Burse in the win over Hawaii on Saturday night. Derron Smith recorded his 15th career interception for Fresno State, Saturday verses Hawaii, moving him into fifth all-time for the Bulldogs and tying him with the lead for most by an active FBS player. Curtis Riley, who transferred from Fullerton College has 56 tackles on the season including 5.5 tackles for loss to go along with six pass breakups.

Each of these All-Star games are important but the most important thing is the practices leading up to these All-Star games which are just a bonus for these players.
