The number of boxes Michelle French checks as a guest of Breaking Lines sets a record that may never be broken.
A playing legend on The Bluff, French returned to her alma mater last year to right the women’s soccer team’s course. Leveraging the experience she accrued while on staff with the U.S. women’s national team, French helped the Pilots double their previous year’s win total, starting a tenure that will add to the three College Cups and All-American status she collected under Clive Charles, as well as her three years as a player in the Women’s United Soccer Association and 14 senior caps for the United States.
So … yeah. I guess you could say there’s a lot to talk about.
On this episode, we discuss her transition back to Portland, the legacies she’s inheriting at UP, her time on the field, her years coaching under Jill Ellis as well the chances for her former team, the United States, retain their title at the coming Women’s World Cup.
