LISTEN: Jeremy Schaap previews Jared Lorenzen’s E:60

“The Hefty Lefty,” ESPN’s E:60 on Jared Lorenzen, premieres Sunday morning at 9 a.m., and this morning, the program’s host Jeremy Schaap came on the show to give us a preview. Like all of us, Schaap was very moved by Jared’s story, which he says is already garnering interest through the trailers released this week.

“It’s an interesting story because we remember Jared as this spectacular athlete who moved like a ballerina despite his size, who could throw the ball a country mile, but he was undone in his career because he couldn’t get into shape,” Schaap said. “We know that the obesity epidemic is something that affects so many millions of people in this country alone and we know how hard it is to combat it. And I think that’s why Jared’s story speaks to so many people.”

Listen to the interview below:

Be sure to set your DVRs to record ESPN Sunday morning at 9 a.m. ET.

    I’ve known Jared all his life, you could not meet a nicer guy. I hope like heck he can get things under control

      I want to know if Lorenzen’s 1997 loss in the Mud Bowl will be discussed? I think a lot of these issues stem from that game. 🙂

    Are you sure this isn’t on TLC? It would make one hell of a “My 600 lb Life” episode.

    Carnivore diet and he’d lose 300 pounds in a year.
