Former Kentucky quarterback Jared Lorenzen was immediately a fan favorite when he burst onto the scene during his college career.
Lorenzen was known as fans as “The Hefty Left” because of his rare size for a quarterback. Despite not looking like your prototypical signal-caller, Lorenzen threw for 10,354 yards, 78 touchdowns and 41 interceptions during his Wildcats career.
During his playing career, Lorenzen tipped the scales at around 300 pounds.
Now that his days as a football player are over, Lorenzen, who has struggled with his weight throughout his career, is set to make a chance. Weighing more than 500 pounds, Lorenzen is going to document his weight loss journey in an effort to shed some serious plans.
Lorenzen announced “The Jared Lorenzen Project” with a video on social media.
Best of luck to Lorenzen during this journey. We will all be watching and rooting for him.
