Jason Hernandez (born August 26, 1983) is a Puerto Rican international footballer who currently plays for New York City FC in Major League Soccer.

College[edit]

Hernandez played college soccer at Seton Hall University from 2001 to 2004, and captained the team in his final two seasons. He was also named Second Team ALL-BIG EAST in 2004.[1]

Club career[edit]

MetroStars[edit]

Hernandez was selected by the MetroStars with the 6th pick in the first round of the 2005 MLS Supplemental Draft and signed a developmental contract with the team for the 2005 season.[2] After not playing a minute in the club's first 29 league games, he made his debut against Chicago on October 5th 2005. He started the last three games of the regular season, as well as both games in the playoffs.[3]

Chivas USA[edit]

Hernandez was traded to Chivas USA in a trade that allowed the MetroStars to move up to the first selection of the 2006 MLS SuperDraft and select Marvell Wynne.[4]

In his initial campaign with Chivas, Hernandez went on to appear in 29 league matches, including 24 starts. During the 2007 season Hernandez saw his role reduced as he appeared in 21 league matches, starting only nine. He started three of the clubs four playoff matches during his two-year stint at the Los Angeles based club.[5]

San Jose Earthquakes[edit]

Hernandez was picked up by the San Jose Earthquakes in the 2007 MLS Expansion Draft.[6] He made his debut on April 3rd 2008, starting against LA Galaxy.[7]

Hernandez would play for the club through the 2014 season, and would captain the team multiple times.[1] His 160 games started and 13,859 minutes played placed him third all time in both categories for the club.[7]

New York City[edit]

Hernandez was selected by New York City FC as the 6th pick in the 2014 MLS Expansion Draft.[8] He would start in their first ever MLS game, a 1-1 draw with Orlando City SC on March 8th 2015.[9]

After the signing of Italian legend Andrea Pirlo in July 2015, Hernandez changed his number from 21 to 2 to honor his boyhood idol, New York Yankees legendary shortstop Derek Jeter.[citation needed]

International[edit]

Hernandez was born in the United States to parents of Puerto Rican descent. On January 6, 2009 Jason was called into the U.S. Men's National Team's January training camp. He joined Colorado Rapids (MLS) defender Ugo Ihemelu as replacements for Clarence Goodson and Cory Gibbs who left camp early,[10] but he ultimately did not feature in the game. He was called up to the Puerto Rico national football team and made his debut on March 29 for 2017 Caribbean Cup qualification against Guyana.[11]
