AUBURN - We want to start the gymnastics preseason off by introducing the gymnasts to Tiger fans. Every Monday throughout this upcoming year, we will uniquely get to know one of our gymnasts by asking them interesting questions about themselves.

By doing this, everyone can get to know them a little better-- not just as an athlete, but as a student, a family member and a friend. This week, the spotlight is on Lindsey Puckett from Dacula, GA. Puckett is currently a senior at Auburn majoring in supply chain management.
