Personal life[edit]

Javier Orozco is the son of Luis Antonio Orozco who played in Atletico Tecoman and Irapuato FC in the 1980s and also is brother to Luis Orozco that plays for Club Tijuana who is also a striker. Orozco is nicknamed "Chuletita", meaning "little pork-chop." The nickname "Chuletita" comes from his father, Luis Antonio Orozco, who earned the moniker "Chuleta" when he was six years old, by his father, who would tell him "vete por las chuletas"—a Mexican slang saying which translates roughly to "go get the money."
