Stevan Hernandez

Stevan Hernandez enters his thirteenth season as a head coach in the St. Andrews athletics department. Hernandez returns to the helm of the men's soccer program for the fourth consecutive year after spending the 2009-2010 academic year as the Director of the Annual fund for St. Andrews.


Hernandez is coming off the best season in school history in 2014 as he led the Knights to a 17-2-1 record and an appearance in the sweet 16 of the NAIA National tournament. Hernandez was named conference and regional coach of the year for leading the team to a conference regular season and tournament championship. They finished the year ranked 15th in the nation.


In 2006, Hernandez led the St. Andrews men's soccer team to its best season in the college's NCAA Division II era with a 13-6-3 overall record and a fourth place finish in the CVAC with a 6-3-1 ledger. The Knights made a run to the conference tournament championship game and were ranked nationally in D-II as one of the top-10 most improved teams.


In his first four seasons with the Knights men's soccer program, Hernandez coached seven All-Conference honorees, three league All-Tournament selections, three conference Players of the Week, two All-Region award winners, and two All-State recipients.


Hernandez also served on the NCAA and NSCAA Southeast Regional ranking committee.


Hernandez joined the Knight athletic staff in the summer of 1998. He began his tenure as head softball coach in the spring of 1999 and assumed the responsibilities of coaching the re-instated women's soccer program in the fall of that same year. Hernandez coached the women's soccer program for five years and led the Knights to their first CVAC playoff birth in 2003. Hernandez moved from the women's team to the men's in February of 2004.


Coach Hernandez holds the NCAA Division II school record for single-season wins for men's soccer, women's soccer, and softball.


Hernandez earned a Bachelor of Science in recreation administration from Wingate University in 1997 and completed his masters' degree in Physical Education at UNC Pembroke in 2008. Hernandez holds his Advanced National Diploma from the NSCAA.


Hernandez married Elizabeth Bowden in July of 2004. Their son, Jackson, was born November 2, 2008. Stevan, Elizabeth, Jackson and their dog, Humphrey, currently reside in Laurinburg, NC.

I have used the Soccer in College site for 8 years, and it has helped me keep my personal and soccer information up to date, and has helped be track college contacts and interest. I think the site helped me prepare for college offers, and helped me determine that I wanted to play for UNC.
