Here is a photo gallery of Lindsay in action, and here is's Cheerleader of the Week archive.

I love my school, but I almost went to: Duke. (Terrible, I know!) I received my Carolina acceptance letter before I finished the Duke application, so I didn't submit the last section. They still sent me a rejection letter, and I still resent them for it! Needless to say, I am a huge supporter of the UNC vs. Duke rivalry.

My best physical feature would be: my eyes. Normally they're hazel, but in the right light they look golden.

If I had to watch one movie on loop for ever, it would be: Office Space.

If you looked at the "most played" songs on my iPod, you'd see a lot of: Corey Smith, The Fray, Cartel, Sequoyah Prep School and Sister Hazel.

My worst habit is: Chewing ice.

My gameday superstitions are: I've always worn bright colored socks. (It's now a team superstition).

I'd love to trade places for a day with: Ellen Pompeo, from Grey's Anatomy, so I could hang out with McDreamy.

The talent I'd most like to have that I don't possess is: Grace. I tend to be more spastic than elegant at times.

These three things top my bucket list: Attend the ESPYs, join the World Poker Tour and start my own business.

I'd want my last meal to be: Triple-chocolate-chunk brownies with funfetti icing.

The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: Carolina is currently in possession of the Victory Bell (the bell that resides with the winner of the Duke/Carolina football game's stadium). As a senior this year, I was designated to sit on the bell at the first game and ring it in sync with the Bell Tower during pregame. As the stadium drew silent and the Bell Tower began chiming, my two teammates (who were in charge of pulling the bell) took off full speed across the field. We gained so much momentum so quickly, I fell halfway off the bell and the rod-iron handle broke off the 60-year-old bell. Luckily, we were able to push the 30-pound bell off the field in time for the game.

Three things I'd take to a desert island are: My best friend/teammate/roommate Rachelle, Bear Grylls and a toothbrush.

My favorite sport(s) and sports teams are: Wakeboarding, college football, Carolina basketball and the Boston Red Sox.

My one guilty pleasure is: The Hills on Monday nights.

My celebrity crush is: Dane Cook, because I love anyone with a good sense of humor.

Five people I'd like to have dinner with (living or dead) are: Roy Williams, David Beckham, Jack Bauer, A.G Lafley and Mark Zuckerberg.

My friends would be surprised to know that I: Love Calculus. I started at Carolina as a math major.

The next risk I want to take is: After graduation and before joining the corporate world, I want to spend a month or two abroad.

The reality show I'd do best on is: MXC.

The worst date I've ever been on was: My very first "real" date in 9th grade. The guy locked his keys in his car at my house and we had to wait two hours for AAA. Once in the car, he serenaded me with Blink 182's First Date from beginning to end.
