He was the team's leading scorer his junior and senior seasons. His junior season he was a Converse Third Team All-American. His senior year, he was part of the famous Syracuse 'S-Men' consisting of himself, Johnny Schroeder, Bobby Stewart, Wilmeth Sidat-Singh and Johnny Simonaitis.

Sonderman would graduate with a degree in Engineering.

He would play some professional basketball for the Newark Elks and the Rochester Royals.
