SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Several Utah Athletics programs sent out a tweet with a special message at the same time in honor of Aaron Lowe.

Utah Athletics, men’s basketball, women’s basketball, gymnastics, baseball, softball, track & field, ski team, tennis, swim and dive, lacrosse, soccer, golf and volleyball accounts were all involved in the message.

At exactly 2:22 p.m. this afternoon, all of the accounts above tweeted out “family on three #22forever” in honor of Aaron Lowe and Ty Jordan, who both wore No. 22 and tragically passed away.

Jordan passed away on December 25, 2020 in Denton, Texas to a accidental self-inflicted gunshot wound. Lowe was shot and killed on Sunday morning at a house party in Sugarhouse.

He 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.
