Just last month, former Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen lost his life in a tragic car accident in Georgia. Since, there has been an outpouring of support from fans, former teammates, incoming recruits and the school itself. Thursday, the current team decided to honor the former Tigers star as well – by painting his number, 43, onto the end zones of the practice fields.

It’s obviously a great gesture from the program. It’s safe to say that the Tigers will be playing this season in his honor.
