Career[edit]

High School, Youth and Amateur[edit]

Hernández attended Saint Benedict's Preparatory School in New Jersey. In 2011, he led Saint Benedict's Prep to a 24-0 record, a number one ranking and the school's seventh national championship in 2011. He was named to the NJ Star-Ledger’s All-Prep First Team, ESPN High School All-New Jersey State and a top 10 soccer recruit in the nation.

Hernández also spent some time in the U.S. Soccer Development Academy. In 2008–09, he made 24 appearances for the LA Galaxy U15/U16 squad and scored five goals. In 2010, Hernández joined the Players Development Academy (PDA), a Youth Development Affiliate of the Philadelphia Union, and scored 16 goals in 26 appearances for the club on his way to winning USDA U-18 Academy Player of The Year.

Hernández also made one appearance for USL Premier Development League club Central Jersey Spartans in 2011.[1]

Professional[edit]

On March 5, 2012, Hernández signed with the Philadelphia Union as the club's third homegrown player.[2] He made his debut for the club about a couple weeks later, coming on as a sub in a 2-1 home loss to the Colorado Rapids.[3] After failing to make the 2012 MLS Cup Playoffs, Hernández joined La Liga side Real Sociedad for a training stint during the MLS off-season.
