This week Park Tudor School announced that former Indianapolis Colts player Orlando Lowry has been named the new varsity football coach.
Lowry, a retired NFL outside linebacker, played for the Indianapolis Colts from 1985-1989. He also played for the Kansas City Chiefs and the New England Patriots.
A three-year letterman for Ohio State University, Lowry played on the 1981 Big Ten championship team and on the 1983 Fiesta Bowl, 1981 Liberty Bowl and 1982 Holiday Bowl Champion teams.
Lowry brings 10 years of experience to Park Tudor, coaching in the Pike Youth Football League and serving as an assistant coach at Guion Creek Middle School, which recently won the Pike Township championship with an 8-1 season record.
This year he also was the track throwing coach at Pike High School and Guion Creek Middle School.
"Orlando will bring an infusion of vision, passion and energy to our football program," said Athletic Director Brad Lennon in a press release. "He has played for and been mentored by some of the brightest names in the NFL, and has played and excelled at the highest level of game."
Lowry is the owner of Lowry Financial Services, an independent insurance broker, and previously served as an independent consultant for a Pittsburgh-based sports management agency.
In addition to coaching, Lowry will assist with auxiliary services programs at Park Tudor, including summer and after-school camps.
"Orlando has a strong understanding of the Park Tudor culture, our high academic expectations, and our emphasis on developing the whole student," Head of School Matthew Miller stated in a press release. "His extensive playing and coaching experience, as well as his strong leadership skills and his winning personality, make him a great match for our school."
