Dan Orlich
From 1956 to 1971 Dan Orlich, former Green Bay Packer, captured 37 major trophies at the Grand American, including 13 major championships. He led the Introductory Singles in 1966, the Class Championships in 1959, the Clay Target in 1956 and 1970, the Champion of Champions from 1961 to 1963 and in 1971, the Zone Champion of Champions in 1962, 1965 and 1968, the All-Around in 1956, and the High-Over-All in 1966. Along the way he racked up the record of 21 200 straights at the Grand American. He tied the record of 19 in 1972's Dayton Homecoming, and he set a new mark two days later with a perfect score in the Class Singles. The following year a 200 in the Dayton Homecoming placed him two over his nearest competitor. Dan Orlich is also the current record holder on singles averages, with his .9982 in 1968 remaining an all-time high. He also holds the record for the highest singles average entered on 100,000-.98826- with the 100,000th being fired at in 1974. Just in 1978 was his record of straights from the 27-yard line surpassed. Dan Orlich was the second in history to accomplish the feat, on July 30, 1964, just 11 days after the initial one. From then until May 11, 1968 he totaled six of them. That was two years before any other had two. In doubles, Dan Orlich was the first in history to break 100 three, four and five times. That was in 1958, 1961 and 1964. He has six of them to his credit. (His record of five was matched in 1966 but not surpassed until 1970.) Orlich still is co-holder of a shootoff record at the Grand, with his 1961 Champion of Champions title being a co-championship after he and George Snellenberger broke 100 straight and then ran another 500 extras. He also co-holds an all-around record. In 1958, he broke 399x400 of the championship targets at the Sahara Fall shoot to set an all-around record, which was tied by Dan Bonillas in 1975 and 1979 but which has not been surpassed. Dan Orlich held the handicap long-run record from 1967 to 1973, with 193. Among his accomplishments, Orlich also counts the most consecutive Champion of Champions titles. Nevada State championships number 25-10 in singles, three in handicap, five in doubles and seven in the all-around. He has earned 10 Western Zone ATA championships-three singles, two handicap, one doubles and four all-around. In Golden West Grand competition, Orlich won the singles championship twice, the doubles three times and the all-around six times, and he holds a record for the most high-over-alls there-eight. Orlich was a member of the first squad to break 500x500. Dan Orlich placed on men's All-America teams every year from 1954 to 1973, being on the second team that initial year and then on the first team for 19 years, with five of those years as captain or co-captain. Trap and Field All-Around Average awards were earned by Orlich in 1959, 1961, 1962, 1965, 1966 and 1967, with his leading the field those first two years. He later became a columnist for the magazine, and a book of those columns was published in 1977. Dan Orlich led ATA singles averages in 1957, 1958, 1959 and 1960 in addition to his record-setting year of 1968, and he headed doubles averages in 1959 and 1961. Dan Orlich was chosen as Nevada Athlete of the Year in 1957 and presented with his award by the lieutenant governor of the state. A native of Minnesota, Orlich went to Nevada as a student at the University of Nevada at Reno and then returned there to live after his three-year stint as an end with the Green Bay Packers. He served as delegate to the ATA from Nevada for 15 years and was on the handicapping committee for shoots throughout the Southwest for that same period of time.


First 100's from 27 Yards | General Content - Trapshooting Hall of Fame - Vandalia, OH

, Colorado Municipal T&SC during the preliminary handicap of the Mile-Hi shoot, Dan Orlich smashed all his handicap clays from the maximum 27.
Orlich, one of the stars of the trapshooting world since his entry into it in 1952, lost one 16-yard target the day he broke all of them from the 27. The very next day, Friday, July 31, he proceeded to break everything thrown at him-which included 100 singles and 100 doubles. This was the fifth time in ATA registered records that Orlich had broken 100 straight in doubles, and the first time one man had ever accomplished such a feat. Starts Shooting in 1956 Lt. Col. Throckmorton, a native of Missouri who has lived most frequently in Texas the past few years and who is now moving to Nebraska, joined the ATA in 1952 (the same year as Orlich) but did not start shooting until 1956. He is an 18-year Army man, currently with USA Artillery. A past director of the Texas State Trap Association, Throckmorton has attended two Grand Americans, last year winning Class A in a preliminary singles race. In 1961 he was the Texas state singles champion, and he has won out-of-state awards in Pennsylvania and Wyoming. Lt. Col. Throckmorton had not shot at Cortez since July 1963, and then he broke 97 in the handicap to be moved back to the 26-yard line. Seventeen days short of one year later, he broke 98 from 26 at Ent R&GC at Colorado Springs to be moved back to the 27. He had shot 2,800 targets from the 26 between those dates. On July 12 this year he shot at his first 100 registered birds from the 27-yard line, with an 89 result. This was at the Pueblo T&SC. On July 17 he broke 94 from 27 at Cortez, and two days later rewrote the record books with the perfect score. Orlich Is Third on 27 Dan Orlich was the third person in trapshooting to be moved back to the maximum 27-yard line after its inauguration in 1955. The former football star earned his way to the 27 on Apr. 16, 1955 at the California State Shoot at Kingsburg. Since 1955 Orlich has 11 times lost only one bird from the 27 in over 50,000 targets. His first near-perfect score was entered at the Golden West Grand in Reno, Nev. in 1956. Dan Orlich has 6 of the first 11 100 straights from 27 yards.

Orlich vs. Snellenberger, 1961 C/C shootoff | Road To Yesterday - Trapshooting Hall of Fame - Vandalia, OH

www.traphof.org [cached]

The heavy favorite to win the shootoff was Dan Orlich of Reno, Nev., a former member of the Green Bay Packers.
Big Dan was in his prime back then, and few ever beat him in important shootoffs like this one. The crowds that assembled behind the two shootoff traps that summer afternoon were well familiar with the likes of Orlich, Bush, Lilly, rotund Eyler and the slight left-hander Webb, who had won the Grand American Preliminary Handicap in 1949 with 100 night. Orlich, Webb, Eyler, Bush and Snellenberger all broke 25. Now it was down to Orlich, Webb and Snellenberger. The next morning in Indiana, George received a phone call from Dan Orlich and Ohmer Webb. Orlich and Webb were waiting. After the Grand American shootoffs, the three walked to the line tocontinue what had been discontinued three days before. Webb dropped three targets in the first extra round and settled for the third-place trophy. It was not to be the last time Ohmer Webb shot off on the trap in front of the grandstand. In 1980, at 72 years old, he won the Clay Target Championship with 200 and another 200 in shootoffs. He remains the oldest ever to win the most prestigious of Grand American championships. But Friday, Aug. 25, 1961 was not to be his day in the sun. Snellenberger and Orlich continued that afternoon until each had broken 300 straight. Dan and George told him, "Herschel, we just aren't going to do this anymore. When Dan and George called a halt, the bewildered ATA officials had no recourse but to declare them co­champions. As I watched his daughter that night last August, I wondered how many present saw George and Dan go at it on this very field 40 years ago.
