Bio

A seventh-round pick in 2013, Sorensen had what amounted to a redshirt year as a rookie, learning the nuances of playing quarterback in the NFL. This year, he will compete with newcomer Kellen Clemens for the back-up job with the Chargers.

Prior to joining the Chargers, Sorensen was a three-year starter at Southern Utah who was a second-team All-Big Sky Conference pick as a senior in the Thunderbirds’ first year in the league. Before that, he was the Great West Conference’s Offensive Player of the Year as a junior in 2011 and a first-team all-conference pick as a sophomore and a junior. He passed for over 3,000 yards each of his three seasons at Southern Utah and set numerous school records, including career passing yards (9,445), touchdown passes (61), completions (822).

A native of Colton, Calif., Sorensen played at Colton High School with cornerback Shareece Wright. In 2006, Sorensen played at San Bernardino (Calif.) Valley College, from 2007-08, he served an LDS mission in Spain, in 2009, he redshirted at BYU and from 2010-12, he played at Southern Utah.

Sorensen's family has a long lineage of college athletes. His brother, Daniel, played linebacker at Brigham Young in 2008 and safety from 2011-12. Another brother, Bryan, is a former tight end who played at San Bernardino Valley College. Oldest brother, Trevan, played tight end at UNLV in 1997 and from 2000-02, while brother, Cody, played at the University of Utah from 2004-05. And Sorensen's cousin, Justin, concluded his career as a placekicker at BYU in 2013.
