Auburn remembers Lutzenkirchen with number on practice field

Auburn continues to find ways to pay tribute to one of its own. Following death of former tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen, killed in an auto accident in June, fans took to rolling Toomer’s Corner and there was a video tribute following a memorial service that was very touching. With Auburn now set to open up camp ahead of the 2014 season, the defending SEC champions will continue to remember Lutzenkirchen with his old uniform number (No. 43) painted on the practice field.

The number is painted in each end zone, and a look at the final touch can be seen through this tweet from Auburn’s Twitter account;

    Paint “43″ onto the GAME field, and promote Lutzenkirchen’s attitude of hard work and EARNING your position in life for all to see and follow.

    Too many high school prima donna’s don’t earn anything but they expect to be handed everything.

    And also learn about drinking and driving and prevent friends driving drunk. Many lessons for these prima donnas
