field passes game nfl


American football player

He's considered the most prolific passer the National Football League (NFL) ever produced. During his seventeen seasons with the Miami Dolphins, Dan Marino generated one of the most remarkable quarterbacking careers in the history of football, averaging twenty-four touchdown passes per season offset by fewer than fourteen interceptions. Year after year, game after game, play after play, Marino's laser-sharp passes moved his team down the field and into scoring position. When Marino retired after the 1999 season, he held records for the most passing yards (61,361), completions (4,967), and touchdown passes (420) in NFL history. Over the years, this fiery competitor won not only games, but also the hearts of the South Florida people. His on-field heroics entertained them, while his off-field endeavors enhanced their lives. Without Marino, The Miami Children's Hospital Dan Marino Center wouldn't exist. Marino's charitable foundation helped build the 20,000-square-foot center, which serves children with chronic medical needs.

I have been a fan of Dan Morino ever since he joined the Miami Dolphins. He is my hero and I hope one day to meet him and see a real game in Miami.

I was born in Homestead Florida and I am dying from a life threating desease.

My last wish is to loose weight and become a healthy person. I want to meet Dan Moreno.
