After being chosen as a “Key Influencer” in the Tuscaloosa community, Alabama gymnastics coach Dana Duckworth went on a ride-along with the Blue Angels, the United States Navy Flight Demonstration Squadron on Wednesday. Duckworth went on the flight days after winning the gymnastics program’s ninth SEC title, becoming the first coach in conference history to win the league championship in their inaugural season as head coach.
