Oregon State running back Trey Lowe is hanging up his cleats.

According to The Oregonian’s Nick Daschel, the senior tailback has medically retired from the football program due to a lingering neck injury that dates back a year. Lowe played in four games for the Beavers last season and was heading into his fourth season with the program.

Depth in the tailback room isn’t an issue, though Oregon State obviously doesn’t want to see anyone forced to step away from the game. Last year’s Pac-12 Offensive Freshman the Year, Damien Martinez, returns to spearhead the rushing attack along with Deshaun Fenwick and Jam Griffin.

Lowe’s best season came in 2021, when he appeared in 13 games and finished third in rushing. He had 359 yards and a touchdown on 56 carries to go with 23 receptions for 200 yards through the air.

He had just seven rushing attempts (32 yards) and two receptions (46 yards) last season, all of which came in the opener against Boise State.

Lowe began his career at Washington. He was a 4-star recruit in the 2018 class.
