A report from an OR television station claimed that a high school football and track coach intercepted and tackled a gunman at his school on Friday.
School officials told KOIN the suspect was exhibiting "concerning behavior" that led two fellow students to report him to school staff.
Yakots will not confirm that Lowe was the staff member involved, but he says the outcome with no injuries was the "best case scenario". Lowe is now a coach at Parkrose High School.
Lowe was a standout receiver for the University of OR and played for the Ducks between 2010 and 2014, according to the school's athletic website. By the time officers arrived, police said, the staff member had detained the gunman in the hallway. "I'm happy I was able to be there for the kids and for the community".

"Investigators have determined that the subject was armed with a shotgun", the Portland Police Department said in a press release about the incident. Reportedly, an 18-year-old male entered a classroom with a gun.
