Jimmy Low Field
The family & friends of WO1 James B Low, and the Beaver High School class of 1969 propose that the Beaver High School football field be named in honor of Beaver Utah’s fallen hero...19 year old Jimmy Low.
Jimmy played football for BHS all 4 years of high school. He also served as class president. After graduation, Jimmy volunteered for the US Army, knowing he would be sent to fight in Vietnam. On March 31, 1971 (3 months after arriving in Vietnam), the helicopter Jimmy was co-piloting was shot down in Laos. He was burned over 70% of his body. He died 3 days later.
Jimmy was the only person from Beaver that didn’t make it back home from Vietnam.
Jimmy Low Field would be a tribute to one of Beaver’s greatest sons, but it would also serve as a reminder to everyone who lives in & visits Beaver that a great sacrifice was made on their behalf by one of their own.
The signatures collected will be taken to the High School & School Board to show that this community is willing to name the field to honor Jimmy. The field currently has no name. Please make sure your name shows up on the petition. Some people have said it’s taken a couple times.
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE NOT ASKING FOR DONATIONS. The site may ask you for one, but that money DOES NOT go to Jimmy Low Field
