Kyle Lowry 10 Fast Facts, Biography, Wiki
Lowry is married to Ayahna Cornish (2012), a fellow Philadelphia native. The couple met while attending Cardinal Dougherty High School together, where she too was a varsity basketball player. Cornish later played at Saint Joseph’s University, where she was also named the best offensive player for two consecutive seasons. However, she suffered an ACL injury her junior year. The couple has two sons: Karter (born August 18, 2011) and Kameron (born July 15, 2015). Kyle Lowry was born on March 25, 1986, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, to Lonnie Lowry Sr. and Marie Holloway. He has a brother named Lonnie Jr., who is five years older than him. His parents broke up when Kyle was young. He had a difficult childhood. His father was never really involved in his or his brother’s upbringing, despite residing only ten minutes away from them. As a result, he was predominantly raised by his mother, with the help of his grandmother. Marie worked two jobs to provide for her children and tried her best to keep them away from the violent streets of North Philadelphia. It was Lonnie, Jr. who served as the male role model for Lowry during his formative years and encouraged him to play basketball. As a youth, Lowry was athletic and also played baseball and football. Baseball was the first sport at which he became exceptionally good and the skills he demonstrated on the football field were not terrible either. However, Lonnie, Jr. convinced his brother to pursue basketball more seriously. He trained Lowry to dribble with his off hand and put him in pick-up games with older boys. With his brother’s guidance, it did not take Lowry long to become actively interested in the game. He started playing basketball before and after school and in the winters, he and his friends would look around for an indoor court where they would be allowed to play. Soon enough, he drew the attention of Dave Distal, who was serving as one of his youth league coaches at the time. He was also an assistant coach at Cardinal Dougherty High School in Philadelphia. At Distal’s suggestion, Lowry began attending Cardinal Dougherty and became a part of their basketball program as a point guard. Lowry truly came into his own during his time at Cardinal Dougherty. He earned the 2004 Pennsylvania High School Player of the Year accolade and in his senior year, registered 19 points, eight rebounds, six assists, and five steals in average per game. He was hailed as a five-star recruit by Rivals.com and was ranked sixth among the point guards and 28th among all players in US in 2004. A number of colleges showed their interest in recruiting Lowry but he faced several difficulties with the recruitment process. For a considerable period, he wanted to be a part of the basketball program at Xavier College in Cincinnati, Ohio but they recruited someone else instead. This ended up happening to him three more times. Eventually, he enrolled at Villanova University in Delaware County, Pennsylvania. In his freshman season, Lowry was included in the Big East All-Rookie team and was named Philadelphia Big Five Rookie of the Year. He played 24 games, averaging 7.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.0 assists and 1.3 steals per game. In the following season, he earned his place in the All Big East Second Team, as well as the First Team All-Big 5. Lowry appeared in 33 games, scoring 11.0 points, 4.3 rebounds, 3.7 assists and 2.3 steals in average per game. Kyle Lowry met Ayahna Cornish in high school. They were both students at Cardinal Dougherty. Cornish was part of their basketball program as well. They have since married and become parents to two sons, Karter and Kameron. In 2013, Lowry and Cornish set up the Lowry Love Foundation, which aims to improve the lives of underprivileged children. Lowry has been a long-time critic of the current US president Donald Trump. In January 2017, he referred to certain executive actions of the Trump administration (colloquially known as Trump Travel Ban) as “bullshit”. Later that year, he compared the US president to a six-year-old child.
