Dan Marino rewrote the book on passing when he entered the NFL. After an All-American run at the University of Pittsburgh, the Pennsylvania native burst into the NFL after being selected in the first round of the 1983 NFL Draft. In his second season, Marino broke six NFL passing records including most TD passes (48) and passing yards (5,084) on his way to earning 1984 NFL MVP honors. Marino led the Dolphins to 10 post-season appearances, one Super Bowl appearance (XIX), and was named to the 1st or 2nd All-Pro teams nine times. Marino also won the NFL Comeback Player of the Year award in 1994, and the Walter Payton NFL Man of the Year award in 1998. Marino once held over 40 NFL passing records and is widely recognized as one of the top passers to ever play the game.
