As Jared Lorenzen was laid to rest yesterday and was memorialized by family, friends, former teammates, fans and more, it seems like the University of Kentucky plans to pay tribute to Lorenzen a few ways in the coming months.
First of all, Mark Stoops voiced his support for Terry Wilson wearing #22 in the season opener.
Terry apparently decided to do that and then talked to UK about it, which is a really awesome gesture by him. If you ask me, I think Terry is becoming one of the most likeable players on this team and that gesture goes a long way in solidifying that. Seeing him wear #22 will be a neat sight.
But Stoops mentioned paying tribute to Lorenzen in other ways this upcoming season. We’ll have to wait and see what that will be but I would expect a helmet sticker or jersey patch or something similar to recognize him which will be a cool thing to see.
As I’ve mentioned in this space before, my first memories of UK Football involve Jared Lorenzen and at 24, I’m slightly older than most of the guys donning the blue and white this year. Many of them probably never seen Lorenzen in a Wildcats uniform, but it’s really awesome to see guys like Terry Wilson step up to honor one of the legends.
I’m excited to see how UK pays tribute to Lorenzen in the next few months, particularly in the football season.
