Jared Lorenzen defines the term Hefty Lefty. Hell, he is the Hefty Lefty.

The ex-Giants and Kentucky QB is still making people look slim and silly playing for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the CIFL.

Lorenzen played at Kentucky from 2000-03, and he threw for 10,354 yards, 78 TDs and 41 INTs. He also rushed for 12 TDs during his four-year career.

Chances are you may look much different than he does, but he could probably still outrun you and out throw you. And he led his team to victory, as the River Monsters beat the Bluegrass Warhorses 36-20.

  1. Wow. I remember seeing him play in college and thinking he was a monster then.

  2. Didn’t they used to call him Fat Cat?

  3. ha ha. Wow, that dude is HUGE.


  5. B-U-T-T-E-R-B-E-L-L-Y!

  6. Wow! I wonder if he would lose weight if he stopped playing? He’s gotten bigger and bigger.

  7. Wow! I wonder if he would lose weight if he stopped playing? He’s gotten bigger and bigger as a player. Always enjoyed seeing his highlights from back in the day.

  8. Can they not find pads that’ll fit him?

  9. Everyone may laugh at Lorenzen now because of his weight, but there were plenty of teams who weren’t laughing at all when they had to play him and Kentucky. He was a good passer and could move around in the backfield pretty good in his college days. Even at “Mac Truck” size, it appears he is still moving around pretty good. But really….320? It looks like it is closer to around 380!

  10. “River Monster” is a very correct title for him!

  11. What a total slob!

  12. If he needs a blow after a run, he could always take over at left tackle for a few plays. The guy has always been more evasive than his size would lead you to believe.
