WINDSOR, Colo. – The Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC announced today that the team has re-signed forward Marky Hernandez for a second season.
Hernandez previously played for the Chattanooga Red Wolves, where he met Head Coach Eamon Zayed. The two have known each other and worked together for a while.
“I’ve known Marky for a few years now. I signed him because I know what he can do, what he’s capable of,” Zayed said. “He was kind of hampered on and off with injuries [last season]. I’m hoping, with an injury-free season… we’ll see the real Marky and he’ll be a massive piece for us this year.”
Hernandez played in 23 of the team’s League One matches in 2022, starting 10 of those. He had three goals and three assists, a feat that Zayed believe’s a player of Hernandez’s ability can exceed in 2023.
In 1,063 minutes played, Hernandez also made 206 successful passes, 15 of them being labeled as key passes.
The future home of Northern Colorado Hailstorm FC, 118-acre Future Legends Complex, will feature 6,500-seat TicketSmarter Stadium, 2,500-seat Future Legends Field, multiple baseball diamonds, multi-purpose fields, an indoor sports arena, lodging, and retail; and will host guests for major sports leagues, tournaments, events and more.
