We're celebrating a very special BIMBO Birthday today as we welcome our newest homegrown, defender Anton Sorenson!
Sorenson turns 19 today and was just announced as the 18th Homegrown player in Union history.
Sorenson joined the Union Academy system in 2019 when he joined the U17 squad. The YSC Academy player spent the 2020 season playing for Union II in the USL Championship. He made his debut for the team on Aug. 2 and would log more than 1,000 minutes in 12 appearances for the club (11 starts). He scored his first professional goal for Union II on Sept. 17 in a 4-0 victory over Loudoun United.
Sorenson is also making an impression with the United States Youth National Team. He was first called up to a U-14 36-player camp roster in 2017 and was later called up to the U-16 team three times, making his debut on April 24, 2018. He was a member of the 2018 U-16 team that finished third in the Torneo Delle Naizoni in Italy alongside current teammate, Jack McGlynn.
