With the 2021 National Signing Day in its rearview mirror, Humboldt lacrosse added two more names to its roster this February: Logan Sorenson from Hemet and Conner Kaboni from Merritt, British Columbia.
Connor Kaboni, the younger brother of HSU freshman Clinton Kaboni, said he had entertained going to school in Canada but jumped at the opportunity to play with his brother. Kaboni added he’s been training every day of the offseason and can’t wait to get back on the field again with Clinton.
“It’s going to be amazing. I’m so excited,” Kaboni said in an article from the Anishinabek News. “I used to love playing with him. I thought why not go where my brother is and play there with him.”
The last time the brothers suited up for the same team was when they represented an Indigenous squad at the 2018 B.C. Summer Games.
Kaboni said he wants to study business at HSU and has already started a clothing line “to inspire other kids that anything is possible.”
“It is a clothing company focused on promoting positive thinking, healthy choices and healthy lifestyles,” he said.
Hailing from Hemet in Riverside County, California, Logan Sorenson said he enjoys “spending time doing anything and everything outside” — which means Humboldt County will suit him perfectly.
“I chose Humboldt State due to its location next to the redwood trees but also close to the ocean,” Sorenson said. “Its sports, diverse culture, and small class-size drew me in.”
When he’s not playing lacrosse, Sorenson said he enjoys fishing, hiking and soccer.
