OT: Jared "Hefty Lefty" Lorenzen dies at 38

Recommended Posts

I know it's not Bengals related but he did play for UK.  Health issues.  After his playing days his weight got over 500 pounds.

 

Rest in Peace

I had been watching his videos on YouTube. "The Jared Lorenzen Project" I was rooting for him, easy guy to root for. Very sad RIP Hefty.

Damn, that's rough.  That middle-aged metabolism change is bad enough without being a retired athlete on top of it.  Dude rang in at 288 when he entered the draft.

The board is slow these days.  Wanted to put this somewhere it would be seen.

 

Don't like it?  I don't care.  :smile:

It's worth mentioning that former Bengals QB Anthony Wright was shot this week by his girlfriend's ex. Radio is expected to recover.

Overlooked with the passing of Jared Lorenzen was he was in contract negotiations with the Bengals and was expected to challenge Bobby Hart

at ORT.  He had a very good chance to win the position outright.
