Kentucky pays awesome tribute to Jared Lorenzen
The Kentucky Wildcats lost one of the most memorable figures in the history of their football program on Wednesday when former quarterback Jared Lorenzen died at 38.
Lorenzen was a four-year starter for Kentucky from 2000 to 2004, and threw 78 touchdowns for the Wildcats. While those teams weren’t exceptionally successful, Lorenzen was a memorable and exciting player who set a number of school records during his tenure, including passing yards and passing touchdowns.
After the news of Lorenzen’s passing spread, the team’s Twitter account posted a cool tribute to the quarterback.

Lorenzen remains the school’s all-time leader in both passing yards and total offense. He’ll long be fondly remembered in Lexington for his contributions.
