Published Monday, April 23rd, 2018


Stories posted last week about Trent Lowman’s decision to resign as head football coach at Bandys High and become head football coach at East Surry gave incorrect years for Lowman’s time as a varsity starting quarterback at his alma mater.

The correct timeframe:

After playing a bit on the 1997 varsity team at Bandys (he had one rush for a 2-yard loss and threw no passes) and sparingly on the 1998 team (four rushes, three passes), Lowman was the Trojans’ starting quarterback in 1999 and 2000 when they went 10-2 and 6-5, respectively.

As a junior, he completed 99 of 193 passes for 1,607 yards with six rushing touchdowns and 23 touchdown passes with 10 interceptions. The Trojans fell in the first round of the state playoffs, losing 20-17 at Mountain Heritage.

As a senior, Lowman completed 110 of 223 passes for 1,674 yards and 19 TDs to finish with 3,329 career passing yards – a school record at the time – and 42 passing TDs. Bandys did not reach the state playoffs that season.

The years, etc., have been corrected in previous posts about Lowman. regrets the errors.
