Irrelevant Week is a week-long celebration of the Underdog, the final pick of the NFL draft held in Orange County. Events include a golf tournament, a regatta and a sports banquet, and are open to the public. The idea for this celebration was formulated in 1976 by Irrelevant Week's founder and chief spokesperson, Paul Salata.
Salata, a former USC football standout and fan of the underdog, started the Irrelevant madness in 1976 when U. of Dayton wide receiver Kelvin Kirk was selected 487th and dead last by the Pittburgh Steelers.
Capped by the presentation of the Lowsman Trophy, many sports celebrities join in the fun of roasting and toasting the final NFL draft pick before he ventures to NFL Rookie Orientation Camp.
