Jared Raymond Lorenzen (February 14, 1981 – July 3, 2019) was an American football quarterback and commissioner of the Ultimate Indoor Football League.[1] He played college football at Kentucky and was signed by the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent in 2004. He played there until 2007. He later played for the Indianapolis Colts in 2008.

During his career, he received the nicknames Hefty Lefty and Pillsbury Throwboy because of his high weight for a quarterback and being left handed.[2] He was born in Covington, Kentucky.

Lorenzen died on July 3, 2019 in Lexington, Kentucky from heart and kidney failure caused by an infection, aged 38.[3][4]
