HOW ACQUIRED: Hernandez signed with FC Dallas as a Homegrown Player on July 30, 2010.
A rangy fullback with international experience, Hernandez has been brought along carefully by the FC Dallas technical staff, spending time on loan at Guatemalan side Comunicaciones and in Costa Rica with Saprissa in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Broke into the FCD starting lineup at left back in 2014, but found himself second-choice behind Ryan Hollingshead down the stretch a year later. The youngest of four siblings, Hernandez has a son of his own, Moises Javier, who was born on July 28, 2011 in Dallas.
INTERNATIONAL: Hernandez’s father Javier is from Guatemala and his mother Maria is from Edinburg, Texas, giving him dual US/Guatemalan eligibility. He was a member of the US U-20 national team player pool but eventually accepted a call-up from Guatemala and made his Chapines debut in 2015. Started two of Guatemala's three Gold Cup games that summer.
