Jared Lorenzen, 1998

Posted on August 2, 2017 | in Uncategorized | by

Highlands High School quarterback Jared Lorenzen on Aug. 10, 1998, in Fort Thomas. The photo was taken before his senior season. Five games into that campaign, he committed to play for the University of Kentucky. He led Highlands to a 15-0 season and was named Mr. Football. Click here to see an image from our archives of Lorenzen playing in the Boys’ Sweet Sixteen basketball tournament. At Kentucky, the left-handed gunslinger set many school records, including career passing yards, completions and attempts. He had a four-year NFL career and was on the New York Giants’ Super Bowl-winning team in 2008. Struggling with his weight for much of his life, Lorenzen, who recently weighed 502 pounds, is trying to take control of his health and inspire others to do the same.
