Remember the “Pillsbury Throwboy?”
Or how ’bout the “Round Mound of Touchdown?”
Former Kentucky QB Jaren Lorenzen had several nicknames, mostly of the unflattering variety, given his unusual girth for a quarterback.
Lorenzen threw his last pass at Kentucky in 2003 and was Eli Manning’s backup when the N.Y. Giants won the Super Bowl in 2008, is now living large as the QB for the North Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League.
And when I say large, I mean LARGE. Just check out the photo.
Lorenzen’s nicknames were well-earned at Kentucky, where he was listed at 260 pounds. He was 285 with the Giants and doesn’t appear to be sticking to any New Year’s Resolutions.
He’s reportedly up to 320 pounds.
Photos and video of Lorenzen started hitting Twitter last night, so if you want a more comprehensive look at one agile QB, search him out there.
Gotta go for the ankles if you want to tackle the Round Mound of Touchdown https://t.co/epSoaQ5n8C
