Just over two weeks ago the Auburn family lost one of its own when Philip Lutzenkirchen was tragically killed in a car accident. The news hit The Plains with a heavy heart on June 29. In honor of the beloved Tiger, players are wearing a pin with Lutz’s number on it at SEC Media Days.
Auburn center Reese Dismukes posted the following Instagram on Monday morning.
Wearing this pin for my man today #43 #secmediadays #wde
Dismukes will be joined by defensive tackle Gabe Wright and senior tight end C.J. Uzomah, who was chosen to replace quarterback Nick Marshall after he was cited for marijuana possession last Friday.
*UPDATE* The three amigos are dressed to impress at SEC Media Days. Notice the Lutz pin on their lapels.
