He is being treated at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics.

“I am prepared to beat this disease, and there is no wait. The challenge is right in front of me and I am all-in. I know I am not alone in this fight. I have the very best doctors, resources, and family you could possibly hope for, and I know that we will beat this.”

A native of Cedar Falls, Iowa, and a four-time Iowa high school state champion, Sorensen was a four-time All-American for the Hawkeyes from 2015-18. He was a 2016 NCAA finalist and a two-time NWCA All-American. He graduated in 2018 with 127 career wins and a bachelor of science in Sport & Recreation Promotion. He has been a member of the Hawkeye Wrestling Club since 2018.
