Born on August 26, 2003, in Medford, New Jersey, Paxten Aaronson is a rising star in the world of soccer. He began his career with the Philadelphia Union in 2015, where he played until 2022 before moving to Eintracht Frankfurt in 2023. As a midfielder, Aaronson has shown his skills on the field, with one assist to his name in the current season. He has played a total of 14 matches in the Bundesliga, winning three of them with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Aaronson's talent has not gone unnoticed. He was selected to represent the United States in the 2024 Summer Olympics in Paris, marking the first time the U.S. men's team has qualified for the Olympic soccer competition since 2008. Aaronson played a significant role in the team's qualification, scoring seven goals in seven games during the 2022 Concacaf U-20 Championship, earning him the Golden Boot award.

Despite the challenges of playing for a club in the midst of a relegation battle, Aaronson has continued to develop his skills. He joined Vitesse on a six-month loan in January 2024, where he has been a key player in their fight to avoid relegation from the Dutch Eredivisie. Despite the tough situation, Aaronson has been performing well and his time in the Eredivisie has given him the opportunity to start regularly.
