Congratulations to Lassiter alumni Mark Bloom who recently joined Atlanta United. The AJC featured him in an article with all of the details:
Hanging in the office of Berry College coach Richard Vardy’s office is a red Toronto FC jersey, signed by former Viking Mark Bloom.
Vardy hopes to soon hang a red-and-black Atlanta United jersey signed by Bloom.
The former Lassiter High standout, who played at Berry, was picked up by Atlanta United as part of a trade with Toronto in December following the expansion draft. Atlanta United President Darren Eales said Bloom had caught his eye when Toronto had workouts against his former team, Tottenham, a few years ago.
