Auburn Football: Ex-Auburn TE C.J. Uzomah Posted A Heartfelt Tribute To Late AU Teammate Philip Lutzenkirchen

Former Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen was tragically killed in a car accident last June 29 at the age of 23. Today would have been Lutzenkirchen's 24th birthday, and his former teammate and fellow tight end C.J. Uzomah wanted to make sure people knew about it. 

Uzomah, who was selected by the Cincinnati Bengals in this year's draft, posted a touching tribute to "Lutz" on his Instagram this afternoon. 

Lutzenkirchen's death dealt a major blow to the entire Auburn community. Our thoughts are with his family today.
