Former Kentucky quarterback Jared Lorenzen and future UK quarterback Patrick Towles are going to be teammates â€” in a pizza eating contest.
Mark Collier of FortThomasMatters.com and Will Chambers will take on Lorenzen-Towles in the Mark vs. Food challenge to benefit the Brighton Center in northern Kentucky on Sunday.
Collier posted on the website: â€œCome to Raniero’s Pizza (Cold Spring on Martha Layne Collins Blyd.) this Sunday at 1:00 to watch a combined weight of 565 pounds in Jared Lorenzen and Patrick Towles take on a staggering 335 pounds in Will Chambers and myself. So come watch two University of Kentucky quarterbacks destroy two skinny guys in a pizza explosion.â€
The teams will have 15 minutes to eat a 24-inch pizza, and I like the teammate Towles has to help him in this event that will benefit an organization in northern Kentucky that helps a lot of folks in need each year.
â€œWe will be doing 10 of these this year in different locations with different challenges,â€ Collier said. â€œSince Raniero’s is typically closed on Sundays, afterward, Buffalo Wild Wings (right next door) is hosting an after-party playoff watch shindig, where 10 percent of all food sales will go towards our cause.â€
Lorenzen helped coach Towles, who was named a Parade All-American last week, at Fort Thomas during the 2010 season and is a Highlands alum also. Itâ€™s great to see both Lorenzen and Towles taking time to help others and have a little fun at the same time. If you are in northern Kentucky, take time to go support this worthy event and also take advantage of a chance to meet Lorenzen and Towles.
