Gotta admit it. This writer was hoping Philip Lutzenkirchen would leave Auburn early for the NFL. Oh not for any rooting-interest reasons. I just hate having to type his name because I know sooner or later I’ll fumble and mistype it.
In all seriousness, in a bit of good news for a program in need of some positivity, Lutzenkirchen announced on Twitter last night that he will return to the Plains for his senior season:
“It’s official world. I’m staying for SR year. War eagle!”
Lutzenkirchen caught 24 passes for 238 yards last year in Gus Malzahn’s run-first system. While his overall catch totals aren’t eye-popping, seven of his 24 receptions went for touchdowns. That was the team-high for Auburn pass-catchers.
