a crush

Can you call someone you have a crush on a crush? I've looked up my dictionary, but I couldn't find crush used in such a way. But in Google, I found this sentence: "
That feeling: when your crush looks at you." ("a big crush" - Google 검색)

Can I say "She was my crush in high school."?

    Yes, here it is, right at the bottom of our own dictionary entry:

    noun
    1. a dense crowd, esp at a social occasion
    2. the act of crushing; pressure
    3. a drink or pulp prepared by or as if by crushing fruit: orange crush
    4. informal an infatuation: she had a crush on him
    5. the person with whom one is infatuated
