Dating a guy who is out of my league
It doesn't bother me because that's my feeding schedule too.Somewhere in there, Lorenzen realized he might have a shot at the NFL.
Lorenzen stopped by between classes in an Oxford button-down and penny loafers. Dale Mueller remembers laughing at an interview Lorenzen gave back then: I have to feed her at 9 and 11 and 1 and 3 and 5.
Weigh-in day would come and he'd put on extra shirts and sweatpants and take off running. His mom remembers when Jared was 4 and he plopped down in the middle of the soccer field and started crying because there was too much running in soccer. In practice, he'd drop to one knee at midfield and throw at the goalpost until he hit the crossbar.
Mumme remembers holding a camp in Lexington for some of the top college quarterbacks in the country.
Sometimes he'd lie on his back in the living room and lob a baseball or football to himself, over and over, for hours. He bawled when the coach made him the quarterback because it meant taking the snap from center, and it freaked him out to touch another boy's butt. Jared ate from the frozen food aisle -- fish sticks, mac and cheese, Salisbury steaks, chicken pot-pies. "He had his box, I had my box."At Highlands High in Fort Thomas, Kentucky, coach Dale Mueller had three fitness groups: the power group, the quickness group and the run-'til-you-die group. He weighed 240, which looked especially strange because a couple of his offensive linemen were about 190. "I'd rather watch grass grow than watch Big Ten football," he says. And Mumme, the Kentucky coach, had already called at a.m. The student trainer had gained 10 pounds."I just said, 'Eh, nobody made Babe Ruth train,'" Mumme says. The next coach was Guy Morriss, a former NFL offensive lineman. Morriss told him he couldn't play until he got down to 268.
When he was 5, before a peewee football game, he was tossing the ball back and forth with a teammate. But he got past it once he figured out quarterbacks got to throw. He got hooked on Dots gumdrops because there were always some left over at Halloween. Every day Lorenzen drank two 2-liter bottles of Kroger's knockoff Mountain Dew. But in Lorenzen's senior year, Highlands scored 801 points while going 15-0 and winning the state title. Still, most colleges were just interested in him for his body. So Lorenzen played racquetball for two hours every morning, went through the normal football workouts, then swam every night. Lorenzen grabbed a Snickers and started eating his way up the scale again.He and I agree that we can't be grown men until we are not such overgrown men. I can walk, but it's like whoop, it inflates right away. Yeah, it inflates because I probably have more weight on it than I should, and I need to lose the weight.Well, in order to lose the weight, I have to be able to work out.Tom Coughlin, the Giants' coach, had weight limits for every player.
