Lowe entered the 1976 NFL Draft and was selected in the fifth round by the San Diego Chargers, where he remained throughout his 11-year career.

Following his career with the Chargers, Lowe began a successful coaching career. He served as an assistant with the Kansas City Chiefs, Oakland Raiders and the University of Alabama-Birmingham.

Lowe passed around credit for his induction.

"There are a lot of other people that I owe credit to and give credit to," he said. "It is truly an honor to be inducted, but there are a lot of people that had a lot to do with me being successful." Lowe is currently an assistant coach at Jackson-Olin High School (Alabama).
