SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – The Utah football team is mourning the loss of defensive back Aaron Lowe, who was shot and killed in Salt Lake City early Sunday morning.

Aaron Lowe was the first recipient of the Ty Jordan Memorial Scholarship and switched his number from 2 to 22 during the offseason to honor the life of his childhood friend.

Before the BYU game, the Cougars ran out of their tunnel with a “LLTJ” flag. When Utah was running out of their tunnel, former Ute Samson Nacua gave the flag to quarterback and captain Cam Rising, who gave the flag to Aaron Lowe.

Lowe signed with Utah in 2019 as a three-star recruit out of West Mesquite High School. He played in 11 games on special teams as a freshman. During the COVID-19 shortened season, Lowe played in all five games on special teams in 2020.

Current and former players of Utah football and the state of Utah took to social media on Sunday morning after hearing of the passing of Lowe.
