Former Miner Jacob Cowing continues to Live Like Luke at Arizona

EL PASO, Texas -- Standout wide receiver Jacob Cowing continues the #livelikeluke legacy at Arizona.

Cowing had been dubbed to wear the No. 2 for UTEP this season in honor of his former teammate Luke Laufenberg who died from a long battle with leukemia in 2019.

That was before Cowing entered the transfer portal which saw him eventually land with the Wildcats.

Luke's Dad, Babe Laufenberg confirmed on twitter Saturday that Cowing had asked permission to still wear Luke's former number at Arizona and continue the Live Like Luke tradition, showing that Luke's legacy transcends more than just the UTEP Miners.

Cowing showed out in his first game with the No. 2 on his back - with 152 yards and 3 touchdowns from 8 receptions.
