Former Auburn tight end Philip Lutzenkirchen died in a one-car crash in Georgia on Sunday, state police said. Per ESPN:

Authorities said Lutzenkirchen, 23, was ejected from a 2006 Chevrolet Tahoe when it overturned several times near LaGrange early Sunday morning. He was a passenger in the vehicle.

Auburn coach Gus Malzahn called Lutzenkirchen "a great player and competitor" and "a great teammate and friend off the field."

"This is a sad day for the entire Auburn family," Malzahn said Sunday in a statement. "I find peace knowing that even though Philip was taken from us too soon, that he lived his life to the fullest, leaving a lifetime of great memories for his family and friends to cherish forever."
The driver of the car, 22-year-old former UGA baseball player Joseph Ian Davis, also died in the crash after being partially ejected.

Jesus, man. This kid played with a lot of heart. He really seemed like a good guy and teammate. Always sad to see someone cut down in the prime of life.

Prayers to family and loved ones.

Not only did he make a positive impact on everyone around him when he was alive, but even in his passing we are reminded how precious and fragile life is, making us all value it more. His life stood for something that we all strive for, and because of that, everyone can take solace in the fact he will always be remembered in a positive light.

We all shouldn't be sad, but grateful we were able to witness a life well lived.
