Utah State Holds Moment Of Silence For Aaron Lowe Before Game Against BYU
LOGAN, Utah – The Utah State Aggies held a moment of silence for Utah defensive back Aaron Lowe ahead of their rivalry game against BYU.
With under 15 minutes until kickoff at Maverik Stadium, Utah State showed a photo of Lowe on the jumbotron and held a moment of silence.
Lowe was shot and killed at a house party early Sunday morning in Sugarhouse.
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.
According to a press release that was sent out Sunday morning by SLCPD, they received a call at approximately 10:30 p.m. MDT on Saturday, September 25 to a noise complaint about a house party at 2200-block of South Broadmoor Street. At approximately 12:30 a.m. MDT on Sunday, September 26, SLC911 received a call from a person in the neighborhood reporting a fight involving a weapon. Police were immediately dispatched after the change in circumstances increased the call from a noise complaint to an in-progress emergency.
The release also stated that it is being investigated as a homicide.
Police tweeted an update on Sunday at 8:30 a.m. MDT that the on-scene investigation concluded and all street closures have been lifted. They are asking that anyone with information on the case should call 801-799-3000 and reference case number 21-176828.
