As a player Farrell began his career at the Gulfport campus before moving to Hattiesburg in 2003 as one of the first players to make the switch. He garnered MVP, All-Conference and All-Region awards as well as Honary Mention All-American.

He showed his potential to becoming a coach by also picking up the Coaches Award and the Crusader Award during his time. Farrell has been to two NAIA Final Fours, one as a player and one as an assistant coach.

His striking talents were not limited only to goalscoring but to assisting as well. Well known for his twisting and turning with the ball Farrell was a handful for any central defender and it often led to him being fouled on a consistent basis, something he was able ride with aplomb during his junior and senior year.
