NFL Great Dan Marino’s Son Avoided Football but Excels in an Entirely Different Sport

NFL rookie and soccer phenom, Dan Marino Jr., is a 23-year old Heisman trophy winner who has been forced to follow his father’s footsteps on the football field. Despite being left off of the Miami Dolphins roster for three years in high school due to not playing football, he now leads them as their starting QB. He also plays center midfield for American Major League Soccer club San Jose Earthquakes but still manages to keep up with both sports.

The “Michael Joseph Marino” is the son of NFL Hall of Famer Dan Marino. Michael was a star quarterback in high school, but he avoided football at college to excel in another sport.

It’s difficult to live up to your father’s heritage as a professional athlete’s son, particularly when your father is a Hall of Famer in his sport. Joey Marino has found himself in this scenario. Joey Marino, the son of former NFL quarterback Dan Marino, became an athlete while avoiding parallels to his famous father. This is due to the fact that the younger Marino chose a different sport than his father. Joey is a golfer who, although he never achieved the heights of the sport like Dan did in the NFL, excelled on the greens. He’s now the head coach of a collegiate golf team since he was so excellent.

Dan Marino enjoyed a Hall of Fame career in the NFL, but the fact that he never won a Super Bowl during his 17 seasons with the Miami Dolphins is his worst flaw. According to Pro Football Reference, he threw for 61,361 yards, 420 touchdowns, and 252 interceptions in his career. In his second season in the league, the first-round draft selection was voted the AP Offensive Player of the Year and earned MVP. He has nine Pro Bowl appearances under his belt and was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2005.

Dan and his wife Claire married in 1985 and have six children together, two of whom were adopted. However, they aren’t the quarterback’s only children. Marino joined CBS Sports as an NFL analyst in 2003. According to Bleacher Report, he established a covert relationship with a production assistant called Donna Savattere while at the network. In 2005, the two conceived a secret love child, which Dan informed his wife about, but it wasn’t made public until the New York Post broke the story in 2013. He subsequently went public with his affair.

Joey Marino had a successful golf career.

Unlike his famed Dolphins quarterback father, Joey Marino never played football beyond a short stint in the pee-wee league. Marino, now 31, has shifted his focus to golf.

Joey played pee-wee football for a short period, according to the Miami Herald, but he didn’t play much after that. He became a golfer instead. He was talented enough to get a University of North Florida scholarship. His father is known for playing a lot of golf, and the father-son combination has played several rounds of golf together at different courses. Grande Oaks, the home course of Nova Southeastern University, is one of them. Joey is the head coach of the men’s golf team at the university, a post he has held since 2018.

Joey Marino is not Dan Marino’s only accomplished kid.

Joey has had some success in his life, but that is not true for all of his siblings. According to the Palm Beach Post, his older brother Michael was diagnosed with autism at an early age, which inspired his parents to start the Dan Marino Foundation in 1992. Michael is now an adult who works as a professional DJ and is an autistic activist. DJ One Trey is his stage name, which is a play on his father’s Dolphins dress number of 13.

Dan Marino is most certainly happy of what Michael has done in his life, but he was most likely not proud of what Michael did in 2018. Michael, who was 30 at the time, was detained by police late one night in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and jailed for DUI. He was pulled over less than a half-mile from his house with a blood alcohol level of more than 2.5 times the legal limit of.08. According to the arrest report, the officer spotted Michael run a stop sign while making a turn, causing two automobiles to “brake immediately and hard to prevent a traffic accident.”
