Big Tree Run Hard

This 310-pound Iowa State DT commit has been playing quarterback in high school and it is a joy to watch

Now feels as good a time as any to remember the late, great Jared Lorenzen—AKA the Hefty Lefty. Lorenzen came out of the University of Kentucky with the arm of Zeus and the athletic physique of Chris Farley. He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the New York Giants in 2004, where he played for four seasons, weighing in around 285 pounds, one of the heaviest quarterbacks to ever play the game at the NFL level.

Lorenzen would go on to become an indoor football force, playing in AF2, Ultimate Indoor Football League, and Continental Indoor Football League, before sadly passing away in 2019. But while Lorenzen may be gone, his legacy lives on in Howard Brown, a 310-pound Iowa State defensive tackle commit who has been tearing it up as a quarterback in high school.

Who’s hungry for a second angle?

Needless to say, the big man can move, but can he throw it? Hahahaha, can he throw it? YOU’RE DAMN RIGHT HE CAN THROW IT.

The mouth waters at the thought of the trick plays and goalline packages the Cyclones are going to be able run when this kid hits campus. Simply put, Big 12 tacklers are not ready for this young man. For now, however, we’ll just have to set a Google alert and feast on his Friday-night scraps. Those should be more than enough to keep us fed through the winter.
