Tide soccer team signs sister of Auburn football star

There aren’t many with the Lutzenkirchen name in this part of the world. There’s at least two playing SEC sports, though.

Abby Lutzenkirchen

Alabama signed Abby Lutzenkirchen to a women’s soccer scholarship Wednesday.

Yes, that’s the sister of Auburn football player Philip Lutzenkirchen.

The Twitter account of Alabama soccer coach Todd Bramble confirmed that fact yesterday

“And yes – for all those wondering, Abby Lutzenkirchen is HIS sister. And I think she’s even better at Futbol than he is at Football.”

Abby Lutzenkirchen, it turns out, is quite a pickup for the Tide regardless of family ties. She is the 25th-ranked recruit in the nation, according to TopDrawerSoccer.com. Lutzenkirchen scored 21 goals and had 38 assists as a high school senior in Marietta, Ga., last season.
