On 7 February 2019, Hernández signed his first professional contract with Canadian Premier League side Pacific FC. He made his debut as a substitute on 28 April 2019 in the club's inaugural match. He scored his first goal for the club, which was also his first professional goal, in their next game against Valour FC on May 1. It would be his only goal for Pacific. After the conclusion of the 2019 season, Hernández did not resign with Pacific.
Hernández received his first Canada U17 call-up in October 2016 for an evaluation camp in Vaughan. He was called up to two further camps in the lead-up to the 2017 CONCACAF U-17 Championship, where he made one appearance in a match against Cuba.
