Mike Lutzenkirchen of the Lutzie 43 Foundation will be speaking. You won’t want to miss this!
Philip Lutzenkirchen was a star football player at Lassiter High School and Auburn University. But his impact on the world went far beyond football. He was a loving son, brother, and friend. He was a man of great faith as a devout follower of Christ. He was kind and generous and someone who went out of his way to help others. Philip was a large presence in the community, both in Marietta, GA, where he grew up, and during his time at Auburn.
Philip is well known for his accolades on the football field. At Lassiter, he became one of the top tight end prospects in the country, amassing over 1,000 yards receiving his senior year. He appeared on ESPN’s “Top Plays” for a miraculous play where he caught a ball out of bounds and threw it to a teammate for a touchdown. After receiving dozens of offers from all over the country, Philip committed to play his college career at Auburn.
At Auburn, everything came together for Philip and the Tigers in 2010 during their National Championship season, the first for the school in over 50 years. Philip became a household name when he caught the game-winning touchdown from Cam Newton in the Iron Bowl to defeat Alabama for the SEC West crown, sending Auburn to the SEC Championship Game.
Unfortunately, Philip’s Auburn career was cut short due to a season-ending hip injury during his senior season, an injury from which he would never fully recover. Despite his injury, he finished his career as Auburn’s all-time touchdown reception leader at tight end with 14 TD catches.
After going undrafted in the NFL Draft, Philip signed with the St. Louis Rams to achieve his goal of becoming an NFL football player. Never 100 percent healthy, Philip’s brief NFL career came to an end in the last cut prior to the 2013 season.
While football was an avenue for Philip, it was never what he wanted to define him. His status as one of the most popular players in Auburn history has less to do with his on-field accomplishments, and more to do with his kindness, generosity and dedication to his communities.
On June 29, 2014, Philip died in a tragic single vehicle accident at just 23 years old. Though Philip has departed from us in this world, his legacy will never be forgotten.
“i know god’s working, so i smile.”

We would like to thank the Alabama National Guard for being our newest sponsor of the Alabama High School Rodeo Association.
Visit them online at https://state.nationalguard.com/alabama and like them on facebook https://www.facebook.com/JoinALGuard
The Guard dates back to 1636, when Citizen-Soldiers formed militias to defend community and country. And for 377 years, the Guard has stayed true to its roots. Enlisting in the National Guard means more time at home. Training typically requires one weekend each month, with a two-week training period once each year. Get a degree with money for school, learn job skills that translate to the civilian world, make bonds that last a lifetime and earn pride for life. When you become a Guard Soldier, your family will thank you, your country will thank you and your future will owe you. Contact a recruiter to find more specifics about your opportunities in your Alabama Army National Guard.
A PATH WITH PURPOSE.
You will hurdle obstacles physically and mentally. You will learn skills that translate into civilian jobs and gain experience that can’t be taught in a classroom. You will face challenges and learn to overcome them.
With your well-earned sense of pride and selflessness, people will look to you in the moment of need. You will rebuild the lives of friends and neighbors after a devastating disaster, or travel the globe to bring basic human needs to a third-world village. Your sense of purpose and impact on the world around you will never waver again.
The Pensacola Rodeo has been moved to Milton Florida.
The dates are the same.
Thanks to our volunteers that assisted with this as it is saving the association over $3000.
