Former Kentucky star QB Jared Lorenzen dies at age 38…who is the last Husker player to be loved nationally?

  • Lorenzen, a nationwide lovable player in the early-mid 2000s at Kentucky, had battled cardiac and renal issues. He was beloved for putting Kentucky on the map, and doing so with a huge arm and good quickness despite being a massive QB; ‘The Hefty Lefty,’ and the ‘Pillsbury Throwboy” were popular nicknames for him
  • Rex Burkhead was beloved in Nebraska, but probably not on a national level like Lorenzen…who was the last player to be recalled as someone that the nation adored, if ever at all?
