Dan Marino's retirement speech and quotes

Daniel Constantine Marino Jr. was born September 15th, 1961. He played for Central Catholic high school in his hometown of Pittsburgh, PA. He played in the university of Pittsburgh for 4 years. Dan always wore lucky number 13.

On April 26th, 1983, the Miami Dolphins selected with the 27th pick of the first round, QB Dan Marino out of the University of Pittsburgh.
Marino was the 6th QB taken in the first round of the 1983 draft, later to be known as the QB class of 83. The Dolphins were suprised when Marino was still available when they got to pick. They instantly took Marino.

In the first round the Baltimore Colts took John Elway (and then traded him to Denver) with the 1st pick, Kansas City took Todd Blackledge (7th), Buffalo took Jim Kelly (14th), New England took Tony Eason (15th) and the New York Jets took Ken O'Brien (24th).

Hall of fame coach Don Shula said "Picking Marino was one of the easiest decisions I've ever had to make" and Chuck Connor who headed Miami's draft between 1978-88 said when Miami's pick was next "There was no discussion, everybody knew Danny was our pick".

Marino was also picked in the 4th round of Major League Baseball's draft by the Kansas City Royals (1979) and He was the first ever selection in the USFL draft (L.A Express).

On September 19th, 1983, Dan Marino got into the game in relief of QB David Woodley, it was a Monday night game against the Raiders, Marino threw his first comletion , a 9 yard pass to Mark Duper. Marino threw his first TD to Joe Rose (6 Yards). He never stopped since.

On December 14th, 1983, Dan Marino became the first Rookie QB ever to be selected to start in the pro bowl.

Dan finished his career with a record of 147-93. His 147 wins rank him 2nd by one win.
