Jared Lorenzen Alive and Well in the UIFL

I have to admit, I didn't even know the UIFL existed. But the "Ultimate Indoor Football League" does indeed exist, and according to The National Football Post, one of its.....ahem....biggest stars is none other than former New York Giants backup Jared Lorenzen.

The Ultimate Indoor Football League is a six team league in small Mid-western towns like Canton, OH, and Johnstown, PA, and Lorenzen is currently playing in his home state with the Northern Kentucky River Monsters.

"The Hefty Lefty", "The Pillsbury Throwboy", "J.Load", "The Round Mound of First Downs", "He Ate Me", never in NFL history has such a marginal player garnered so many nicknames, but as my wife will tell you: everyone loves a fat guy.

From the article: (click link for full story)

At first, Lorenzen was hired to be the general manager.

However, he couldn't resist playing again.

He ranks second in the league with 69 touchdown passes, averaging 256.5 yards per game with a 107.1 passer rating.

As you can imagine, not much defense is played in the league, where teams regularly score 60 or 70 points. Imagine throwing 69 TD passes in a 12 game season and finishing second in the league in that category?

Also, according to his Wikipedia page, Jared serves as the QB coach of his at his alma mater, Highlands High School, in Fort Thomas, Ky.

Jared, on behalf of athletic guys with expanding waistlines everywhere, we salute you!
