                                 of his passes for 73 yards. The following week, on the
                                 road against the San Jose Sabercats in the conference championship, D'Orazio started, but was ineffective
                                 with the back injury. He completed just six of 18 passes with three interceptions. The Sabercats jumped out
                                 to a 28-7 lead, and Michna came in. He went 22 of 30 for 247 yards, five touchdowns to one pick, but the
                                 Rush could not complete the comeback, and fell 61-49. It was the third time the Rush met San Jose in the
                                 AFL semifinals, and second time the team lost. San Jose would go on to win ArenaBowl XXI with a 55-33
                                 win over the Columbus Destroyers.
                                 In 2008, D'Orazio signed with the Philadelphia Soul, and the Rush signed AFL veteran Sherdrick Bonner,
                                 who figured to be the starter. However, Bonner got injured early in the season and Michna was named the
                                 Rush's starting quarterback. He would lead the team the rest of the way, even when Bonner got healthy.
                                 Michna finished the season with 57 touchdowns, seven interceptions and 2,721 yards on 239 completions
                                 and 351 attempts. The Rush finished the season 11-5, won the division, and for the first time in franchise
                                 history, had home field advantage for the playoffs. However, the Grand Rapids Rampage, who made the
                                 playoffs as a wild card seed with just a 6-10 record, stunned the Rush with a 58-41 upset in the Divisional

                                 When the Arena Football League suspended operations in 2009, Michna signed with the Chicago Slaughter
                                 of the CIFL, along with other Rush players and coaches Donovan Morgan, Bobby Sippio, Dennison
                                 Robinson, DeJuan Alfonzo, and Bob McMillen. Michna led the Chicago Slaughter to an undefeated record
                                 (14-0) and a CIFL Championship. He was named the CIFL Offensive Player of the week this season 1 time
                                 and was named league MVP. Not only has he led the Chicago Slaughter to their first undefeated season, he
                                 has also led the Chicago Slaughter to its first championship. Michna has also broken the record for most
                                 touchdowns in a game (twice, the second time he broke his own record.)

                                 Michna was signed by the Las Vegas Locomotives of the United Football League on August 31, 2009 and
                                 served as a back-up during the Locos championship run.

                                 2010                                                                                                    [edit]

                                 Although cut before the season began, Michna returned to the Locos when an injury to Tim Rattay opened a
                                 slot as back-up again on the Locos' roster.

                                 Return to the Rush                                                                                      [edit]
                                 Michna was re-signed by the Chicago Rush on January 2, 2010. He was once again the team's starting
                                 quarterback. In fourteen contests, he completed 290 of 423 passes for 3,860 yards, 70 touchdowns and 11
                                 interceptions for a quarterback rating of 126.0. It was good enough to finish second in the league in passer
                                 rating, behind Milwaukee Iron quarterback Chris Greisen, who would sign with the Dallas Cowboys at the
                                 end of the year.
                                 For the 2011 season, he switched his jersey number from 8 to 12, which he wore in college. [2]. Michna led
                                 the Rush to a 9-3 record before suffering an ankle injury. In 12 games, he put up 2,896 yards, 66
                                 touchdowns, 13 interceptions and completed 236 of 354 passes for a 116.0 rating. [3].
