Lorenzen was the quarterback of the United Kingdom football team and was signed by the New York Giants in 2004.

"We wanted to be an example of how, no matter if you played for the blue or the red, how important it is for us to come together and support one another, both in and out of sports", Brown told

Several former Louisville football players, led by Atlanta Falcon Jamon Brown, are erasing the lines of a heated in-state rivalry by helping pay for former University of Kentucky quarterback Jared Lorenzen's funeral.

"The rivalry between the schools is intense, and it's great, but at the end of the day, all that doesn't matter".

This isn't the first time Brown has helped fund a funeral, as he also covered the funeral costs of a one-month-old boy killed in Louisville in May. "What matters is that you remember that we're all in this game of life together, whether you played for the blue or the red". Two other former Louisville stars, Deion Branch and Chris Redman, are also making contributions, according to the piece.

Lorenzen, 38, died Wednesday of complications from an infection and heart and kidney issues.

Quarterback Jared Lorenzen #22 of Kentucky looks for the open receiver against Florida on September 27, 2003 at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Kentucky.

Lorenzen would later spend a few years as Eli Manning's back-up with the New York Giants, winning a Super Bowl ring in 2008.

The celebration of his life will be held on Wednesday, July 10 from 2 6 p.m. followed by a burial service at 6 St. Pius X Church in Edgewood, Kentucky.
