Lowe, a ruckman, played with Geelong in the Victorian Football League (VFL) during the early 1960s while Bob Davis was coach and were starting to develop into a strong side. A member of Geelong's 1961 'night premiership' team, Lowe played in the drawn 1962 VFL Preliminary Final against Carlton as well as the narrow loss in the replay the following weekend. Geelong again made the finals again in 1963 but Lowe, despite participating in their Semi Final defeat of Hawthorn Football Club which booked a place in the Grand Final, was not selected in the premiership decider, which they won.

Upon leaving Geelong, Lowe become captain/coach of Tasmanian club Cooee and represented the state, as vice-captain, in the 1966 Hobart Carnival. His original club, City-South, placed him in the back pocket of their official 'Team of the Century'.
