Former Oregon WR Keanon Lowe disarmed a potential school shooter at a Portland high school back in May. Lowe potentially saved many lives that day, and has been called a hero for his incredible act.

A few months later, a video of the incident has been released to the public. Lowe's successful attempt to disarm the shooter is a heroic act. But what he does after the gun has been secured is truly remarkable.

After disarming the shooter, Lowe proceeds to embrace the kid in hugging fashion. Lowe doesn't let go, trying to calm the kid down in the process.

Here's a video of the incident.

Lowe's compassion and love displayed is absolutely incredible. The video of the incident has gone viral on social media.

After his college football career, Lowe earned a job as an assistant with the Philadelphia Eagles and then the 49ers under Chip Kelly. But after he received news of a good friend dying due to a drug overdose, the former Oregon WR decided he wanted to make an impact in young people's lives.

So Lowe chose to become a high school football head coach and security guard at a Portland high school.

The decision has impacted more lives than he ever could have anticipated.
