From the moment Michelle Bucy, senior defender, stepped foot on campus during her junior year in high school, she knew that Texas State was her future.
She competed in gymnastics, softball, basketball and soccer in high school. The aggressiveness and pace of soccer established her passion for the game.
“I love the game and the competition,” Bucy said. “I love getting tackles and being aggressive. In basketball I always fouled out, gymnastics wasn’t for me and softball was not my pace. I just feel I found my calling in soccer.”
Bucy’s father, Christopher, noticed when his daughter was young that she ran away from the ball instead of going towards it.
