Lowe, a defensive back in his third season as a Utah Ute, was the first recipient of the Ty Jordan Memorial Scholarship, an award created to honor former Utes player Ty Jordan, who also passed away following an accidental shooting in December 2020.
Tragically, Lowe and Jordan were actually best friends and high school teammates. Lowe wore the jersey no. 22 as a way to honor Jordan.
