Former UConn star Dan Orlovsky has been primarily a backup quarterback since joining the NFL in 2005 as a fifth-round pick by the Detroit Lions. Orlovsky is now infamous for running out of the back of his own team's end zone in a game against the Minnesota Vikings during the 2008 season. Orlovsky started seven games for the 2008 Lions and went 0-7 with eight touchdowns and eight interceptions. This past offseason, he was traded to the Houston Texans, where he figures to be a backup. At UConn, Orlovsky set numerous school records, including most career yards (10,421) and most career touchdown passes (84). He also led the team to its first ever bowl appearance, when he helped UConn win the 2004 Motor City Bowl over Toledo. He went to Shelton High School, where he helped his team win a state championship in football his senior year.
