The Philadelphia Union has signed defender Anthony Sorenson to a Homegrown contract, the club announced this week.

“Anton is a promising young player and a natural left-footed defender that will be a valuable addition to our backline,” Ernst Tanner, Union Sporting Director, said in a statement. “He is an attacking-minded outside back who looks to play forward quickly in transition. His mentality, aggression, and physical skills provide a platform for Anton to become a valuable player as he develops further."

A native of Ann Arbor, Michigan, Sorenson is No. 22 in the 2022 Boys IMG Academy player rankings. He joined the Union in 2019 with the U17 squad.

The left back played more than 1,000 minutes for the Union II during the 2020 USL Championship season.
