Widely considered one of the greatest players of all time, 1984 Centereach graduate will become the first field hockey athlete to be enshrine in the National Federation of State High School Associations National High School Hall of Fame on June 30 in Indianapolis. Her coach at Centereach, Nancy Cole, was elected as Coach in 2006. This is such an honor, Fuchs, 52, say. You think about how many athletes play high school sports and theres hell of lot of them. To be the first field hockey player to ever be inducted is a real honor. Youd be hard-press to find a more decorated field hockey athlete than Fuchs. The current Northwestern Coach since 2009 was selected to the US National Team at 20 years old and spent 17 years with the team, 14 as captain.

I knew I wanted to be an Olympian when I was like 7; I just didnt know what sport, " Said Fuchs, who grew up a New York Rangers fan but couldnt play ice hockey because of sparse opportunities for women in sport at the time. I had a little T-shirt that say, Future Olympic Star. Because ice Hockey wasnt option, Fuchs turned to Field Hockey, where she took Centereach by storm.
