ThrowboyTees is a new business venture by Highland alum, Jared Lorenzen, and he needs your help.
"I bleed Highlands and Kentucky blue. I offered my Quarterbacking services to the New York Jets after they lost their starter, Geno Smith, to injury," said Lorenzen. "Now we need some creative Fort Thomas residents to offer their design skills for Fort Thomas or Highlands-centric designs."
Come up with the best design and Lorenzen will send you three of his shirts. FTM will be partnering with Lorenzen to giveaway some of his merchandise.

Lorenzen graduated from Highlands in 1999 and moved on to become a Hall of Famer at the University of Kentucky and win a Super Bowl.
"I've always wanted to start a business and this opportunity was too perfect to pass up," said Lorenzen. "ThrowboyTees is gear that I'd wear. It fits, it's comfortable and cool. We're always going to have new designs up and a lot is limited release."
"We've been tossing the idea around to do a Fort Thomas themed shirt as well. We've got to figure out a way to represent the best high school in the state," said Lorenzen.
Here is the latest ESPN story on Lorenzen's pitch to suit up for the New York Jets.
ESPN- Jared Lorenzen has a proposition for the New York Jets.
The New York Jets lost starting quarterback Geno Smith for six to 10 weeks after he suffered a broken jaw when his teammate IK Enemkpali sucker-punched him, reportedly in a disagreement over a $600 plane ticket.
Enter former NFL QB Jared Lorenzen's idea:
He even has his own clothing line. All he'd have to do is change the shirts from royal blue to green ...
Lorenzen, who most recently was listed at 6-foot-4, 320 pounds, was the starting quarterback for the Kentucky Wildcats from 2000 to 2003. He was the backup to New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning from 2004 to 2007, then signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2008 before being waived at final roster cuts. He has played for a number of indoor football leagues since, and was the subject of an in-depth profile in ESPN the Magazine last year.
Your move, Jets.
