From wide receiver to widely respected: Keanon Lowe brings his story home
Keanon Lowe simply HAD to tell his story. The world, or at least Oregon's corner of it, would settle for nothing less.
Lowe was a football star at the University of Oregon, later working in the NFL with Colin Kaepernick. He came back to Oregon to coach a high school team that had not won a game in years, and led it to a conference championship.
But the single incident he may be forever known for was his disarming--and hugging--a would-be school shooter.
All these are described in Keanon Lowe's book with Justin Spizman, Hometown Victory: A Coach's Story of Football, Fate, and Coming Home.
Keanon Lowe joins us to talk about his inspiring journey, and what lies ahead.
