Yesterday, we told you about ESPN The Magazine’s profile of Jared Lorenzen, and now it’s online for your reading pleasure. The piece is excellent, detailing Jared’s lifelong battle with his weight and his life after football. Jared’s a valuable member of Team KSR, and our own Ryan Lemond is even quoted in the article, alongside Hal Mumme:
“Jared is a great kid,” says Hal Mumme, his former coach at Kentucky. “A tremendous guy,” says Ryan Lemond, his occasional radio co-host on the Kentucky Sports Radio network. “I want people to know how generous he is,” says his mom, Janet Hermes. “He’s the sweetest guy in the whole wide world,” says his ex-wife, Tamara, mother of their two kids.
Click on over and read it, and enjoy the video that accompanies the article above. We love you, Jared.
(By the way, thanks to The Loco Pollo for bringing the article to our attention, despite the fact that it’s been online since this morning and has been tweeted about all afternoon. Where would we be without the crazy chicken’s help??)
