AUBURN, Ala. (AP) — A public memorial service will be held for former Auburn player Philip Lutzenkirchen in his high school football stadium.
The service will be held on Wednesday at 8 p.m. EDT at Lassiter High School's Frank Fillmann Stadium in Marietta, Georgia.
Georgia state troopers have said Lutzenkirchen died in a one-car crash early Sunday morning near LaGrange, Georgia that also killed the driver.
Lutzenkirchen, who was 23, was a popular player who set Auburn's career record for a tight end with 14 touchdown catches.
Auburn is also planning a public memorial at an undetermined date.
Lutzenkirchen's biggest play was catching the game-winning touchdown to beat Alabama in the 2010 Iron Bowl. The Tigers went on to win the national championship.
