The senior offensive lineman specialist for Coachella Valley is one of the cornerstones returning on the Arabs’ roster on offense. A year ago, Hernandez, who was named first team All-DVL, played a big role in giving senior quarterback Darius Hulsey enough time to find his receivers downfield in the team’s run-and-shoot offense, while also providing holes for the team’s rushers to gain nearly 1,300 rushing yards. This season, with junior Armando Deniz under center and adjusting to the faster pace of the varsity game, Hernandez, who’s grabbed the attention of Division 1 and 2 college coaches, buying his quarterback time will be even more important.
