2022: Sanchez, the son of LouCity Academy Director Mario Sanchez, is a Ballard High School senior and 2021 All-State selection. The defender started the season by re-signing a USL Academy contract for the season — allowing him to train with and play for the first team while maintaining amateur status — and frequently featured in the club’s preseason games, including a 90-minute shift in a win over the USL Championship’s El Paso Locomotive FC. After consistently training with first team, Sanchez signed his first professional deal in April of this year before joining USL League One side South Georgia Tormenta FC on loan.
