Photos: Auburn Fans Rolled Toomer's Corner In Honor Of Philip Lutzenkirchen

Sunday afternoon, Auburn fans gathered at Toomer's Corner, usually reserved for celebrations after events on the football field, to honor a man who meant so much more to his family and friends off of it. AU students rolled the trees to celebrate the life of former Tiger tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen, who died early Sunday morning in a horrible car crash in Georgia. He was just 23 years old.

Here are a number of photos of the event - some fans even wore No. 43 jerseys and wrote messages before tossing their rolls.
