The family released a statement to Kentucky Sports Radio Wednesday afternoon.

Jared Lorenzen's final National Football League stint came with the Indianapolis Colts, who signed him in 2008 but released him before the season began.

"We are deeply saddened to announce the passing of Jared today, July 3, 2019".

"Again, we adore all the warm desires and prayers, however as a household, we would interrogate your respect and privateness", the household stated. We will offer arrangement information in the coming days. "Please keep Jared's family and especially his..." After being a standout athlete at Highlands High School in Fort Thomas, Lorenzen would commit to Kentucky to play at Kentucky starting with the 2000 season. Lorenzen was on the squad that upset the unbeaten New England Patriots 17-14 in Super Bowl XLII in 2008. That's where Lorenzen, Manning's backup that season and the previous one, comes into play. He threw for 10,354 yards and 78 touchdowns. Lorenzen lost 100 pounds, telling For The Win, he lost 70 pounds in the first six weeks.

In 2017, Lorenzen started "The Jared Lorenzen Project" on Facebook in which he documented his attempts to lose weight and occur others to do the same. What made him unique as a quarterback was the fact that he was bigger than most, weighing in at close to 300 pounds.

The runoff to the Pakistanis was eerily similar to the 1992 World Cup which remains the only Cup which was won by the nation. You can keep up to date with the table and latest standings here throughout the tournament.

For some of the younger fans, Lorenzen had an incredible career at Kentucky. In an update Tuesday, Lorenzen was said to be "still very sick" and on dialysis, with ongoing cardiac and renal issues. "But I don't know how much better it could be".

With arms draped all over him, his jersey being tugged and the ball being swatted at, Manning managed to escape the sea of humanity and fire a ball down the middle of the field that was miraculously hauled in by wide receiver - a play now referred to as "The Catch".

Maybe you remember him as the Hefty Lefty or the Pillsbury Throwboy.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning shared some fond memories of the late Jared Lorenzen who died Wednesday.

The Giants signed Lorenzen as an undrafted free agent out of the University of Kentucky.
