FALCON PRIDE!

Former East Kentwood and Michigan State soccer player Mark Barone was called up to MLS Team FC Dallas for a tryout with the first team.  FC Dallas had only one pick the 2 rounds of the MLS draft because of trades and Mark was selected first in the supplemental draft. He will have a 2 week tryout and if he doesn't sign with an MLS team, he has a number of teams in Europe that have expressed interest. Congratulations, Mark!
