Terry Wilson wants to honor Jared Lorenzen by Wearing #22 against Toledo

Over the course of the last 24 hours, there has been an outpouring of love for Jared Lorenzen. Whether it’s in Kentucky or nationwide, everyone felt like they were a friend of Jared’s. Today here at KSR, we are reminiscing on our personal experiences and every story that just shows the kind of guy Jared was.

I, however, don’t have a personal story outside of the mesh Kentucky Blue jersey with a faded 22 on it being the first jersey I had ever owned. I wasn’t fortunate enough to meet the great Hefty Lefty, but just like the rest of the BBN who doesn’t have a story, I still want to honor our beloved hero.

But, Terry Wilson might be able to represent all the BBN who hasn’t met him by honoring Jared in the opening game of the 2019 season.

In a tweet, Wilson hinted at rocking Jared’s 22 in the first game at Kroger Field this year.

What a fantastic tribute that would be. Make it happen, UK.

    He does this, he breaks the internet. No need for the question mark, this is a must.

    I believe it would be great to honor Jared by wearing his number. I think it would also be appropriate that at the end of the game UK should have a ceremony and retire the number.

    Does he put Jared’s name or his own name on the back?

      That’s a good question, would they even allow him to wear Lorenzen on the jersey? Either way, even with his name, it’s still an extremely classy move. Maybe the rest of the team will put a 22 sticker on their helmets, maybe do that for the whole season as well as Wilson wearing his jersey first game… just like JP/JS last season…

    I think it would be great to see 22 back at quarterback one last time. and then I vote to continue on and let the players go after their season

    Until the jersey is retired, why not let one preselected player wear it each game?

    Patches on jerseys, or stickers on helmet. Pregame video saluting Jared.
    For me, no to TW wearing #22.

    What an incredible gesture for an incredible man. Make it happen UK!

    Guess I’m the odd man out… I think it should be retired at a ceremony honoring Jared before the first game and no one ever wear it again.

    Matt he needs a statue the man is an absolute legend in my book and I think everyone who has ever been a fan of UK football. I said it before but I’m all for TW or any player paying tribute to this man he deserves it. But I would like to never see 22 worn again after TW. I think it is pretty cool that our QB is embracing our past. We don’t have a long and storied history but one of our brightest spots was 22. I think it would be cool if his kids came out as honorary captains some time this year. He spent his entire adult life promoting UK football we can’t do enough for him and his family

    What if TW has one of his games where he can’t hit the broadside if a barn? End up sacking the pass game and lean on the run. What kind of tribute to Jared Lorenzon would that be? That’s why I’m not in favor of TW wearing 22. He just isn’t close as a QB to our Hefty Lefty.
