Jared Lorenzen has always been big, even as a teen, but this former Giants backup quarterback and star at the University of Kentucky is showing he still has game - even at 320 pounds.
According to a ciflfootball.com report on Feb. 4, Lorenzen was back on the gridiron Monday, leading the Northern Kentucky River Monsters to a win over the Bluegrass Warhorses in the Continental Indoor Football League.
Lorenzen caught a lot of flack about his weight during his time with the Giants. As you can imagine the press always had a comment or two that wasn't very flattering. However, the 32-year-old former college star quarterback showed he still has a bit of game left as he finished 23-for-37 for 183 yards and three touchdowns. He also ran for a score in the River Monsters 36-20 win.
Jared’s return to the team did bring some extra attention on the Northern Kentucky River Monsters.
Jared’s return to the team prompted an unexpected bit of attention from many sportswriters twitter accounts and blogs across the nation, and with a few vine videos, his name was trending on multiple social media sites.
Hey, any attention is good attention, right?
Now if Lorenzen made it back on a NFL squad, that would be the ultimate comeback story.
