PRONUNCIATION: whoy-bury (watch Sjӧberg pronounce it)

Sjoberg enjoyed a breakout year in 2016. However, since he's battled injuries, missing 12 games during the first half of the 2017 season and nine more in 2018. He'll rely on his positioning, organization, and ability on set pieces to get playing time this season.

COLLEGE: Played four years at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where he was named to the All-Big East first team and was the winner of Marquette’s Most Valuable Player Award in 2014.
