How Acquired: Signed by the Galaxy as a Homegrown player on December 11, 2012.

A member of the LA Galaxy Academy’s U-18 team that captured the 2011-12 SoCal Division title, Sorto is the first defender to be signed directly from the Galaxy Academy and fourth player overall. Sorto trained with the Galaxy first team for most of the 2012 season and appeared in seven MLS Reserve League games in addition to his play with the Galaxy U-18’s.

Academy Highlights

Sorto, who graduated from Manual Arts High School in June, is in his second year with the Galaxy Academy, appearing in eight of the team’s 10 games so far this season, scoring three times and helping them to a Division-best 8-1-1 record. He joined the Galaxy Academy ahead of the start of the 2011/12 U.S. Soccer Development Academy season and played in 24 games for the Galaxy U-18’s that year, scoring one goal while leading the team to a 21-5-4 record and a berth in the Development Academy playoffs. Capable of playing anywhere in defense, Sorto was named to the Western Conference U-18 Academy Starting XI Team— joining Galaxy teammate Jose Villarreal on the squad.

After the Academy season was completed in July, Sorto traveled to Sweden to train with Hammarby of the Swedish Superettan, who are coached by former Galaxy defender Gregg Berhalter. Sorto trained with Hammarby for two weeks and played in two games with their U-21 squad. In April, he accepted a scholarship offer to attend Cal State University, Bakersfield before electing to pursue a professional contract.

Prior to joining the Galaxy Academy, Sorto played for Pateadores, a club based in Costa Mesa, Calif., helping their U-18 squad win the Development Academy National Championship for the 2010/11 season. He played in 31 games for the club’s U-16’s and U-18’s that season, making 27 starts and scoring three goals while earning a berth on the Development Academy U-16 Starting XI, which was made up of the best players at their position from around the nation, and the West Conference Starting XI.
