Michael Bush was born in Louisville, Kentucky on June 16, 1984. Bush is a powerful running back who weighs in at more than 250 pounds, and stands at 6 foot 3 inches tall. He has a rare combination of speed, size, and strength that has made him a force on the football field since his early years.

During his high school career Bush was a do it all type player. Throughout his four years he played positions including quarterback, running back, defensive back, defensive end, safety, linebacker, and wide receiver. As a senior at Male High School Bush held down the quarterback position and led his team to the state title. One game in particular stands out in Bush’s high school career. As a senior he matched up against the team of his future teammate at the University of Louisville, Brian Brohm. During this game Bush ran for 116 yards, threw for 468 yards, and accounted for seven touchdowns. In a game that many think is the best ever in the state of Kentucky, Bush’s team came out on top 59-56.

After high school Bush took his game to the University of Louisville where he began to play running back once again. The 2005 season was a breakout year for Bush when he ran for 1,143 yards and scored 23 touchdowns. His 23 scores were enough to lead the entire NCAA Division I in scoring. Unfortunately, during the first game of the 2006 season Bush broke his right tibia, and never returned to the field. Before this injury he had scored three touchdowns and tallied 128 yards on the ground.

Although Bush only had the chance to showcase his talent for one full season, he definitely left his mark on the program and is looking forward to doing so with future teams as well.

After the conclusion of the 2006 season Bush declared himself eligible for the 2007 NFL Draft. He is looking to pick up where he left off before being injured.
