The All-Star event is the first for the AFL since 1993.
The game is set to be played in Honolulu, Hawaii, November 16, and the league currently is working on plans to confirm a date for the first American-style professional football game ever in China in the near future.
The Vardaman native is ranked among the all-time greats in every career AFL rushing category. He is currently ranked 8th with 72 touchdowns in his career, 9th with 1,129 career rushing yards and 12th among the all-time leaders with 325 career carries.
Armstrong and the defending AFL Champion Rattlers (14-3, 8-1) won their third-straight Western Conference title with a 79-42 win over the New Orleans Voodoo in mid-July and will look to defend their championship as they open post-season play after closing the regular season on the road against the Iowa Barnstormers July 27.
