Jared Lorenzen—aka the Hefty Lefty—has been spotted on the football field, and it is as awesome as you would expect.

Video of Lorenzen in action has surfaced, via John Feitelberg on Vine (h/t SB Nation):

Apparently sacking the Hefty Lefty isn't easy, via Feitelberg:

Gotta go for the ankles if you want to tackle the Round Mound of Touchdown

The legend of Lorenzen began at the University of Kentucky back in 2000. He went undrafted in 2004 but got a chance to be a backup in the NFL for four seasons. He even has a Super Bowl ring, as he was a member of the New York Giants in 2007 when they stopped the New England Patriots' quest for perfection.

Kentucky listed Lorenzen 6'4" and 260 pounds during his time with the Wildcats. He has only gotten bigger.

LEX18's Kyle Scott tweeted out pictures of the quarterback:

The 32-year-old now plays for the Northern Kentucky River Monsters of the Continental Indoor Football League. The team lists the Pillsbury Throwboy at 320 pounds. 

Take a moment to let that sink in. Lorenzen is a 320-pound quarterback. Good luck sacking him.
