Player Spotlight: Angel and Gabe Hernandez C/O 2024 Cornerback/Safety

Twice As Nice

In our first ever article of a set of twins, comes Angel and Gabe Hernandez of SanTan Charter High School in Gilbert, Arizona.

The fraternal twins currently play for former NFL player and current head coach, Kerry Taylor, who we have previously written on.

The young men made the business decision to transfer to SanTan, as they followed their former youth league football coach, Chaz Scott to the school.

Scott is the current linebacker coach and a former Pac-12 linebacker, as he played for the Beavers of Oregon State.

Both young men play defensive back, with Gabe seeing the most action at corner and Angel seeing his action at free safety.

While they are twins, they are fraternal, so naturally, they play differently as well.

Gabe is the speed guy and he has competed in the USA track speedster events. He also sees time at tailback, as he ran for 80 yards on the year on just 10 carries, for a whopping 8 yards per carry, and he added a touchdown as well.

On the defensive side of things, at corner, Gabe averaged about 3 tackles per game and he also had a pass breakup on the year, to go along with a forced fumble.

Angel is more of the player that plays with reckless abandon, as he flies around the field and delivers punishing hits like the Arizona Cardinals’ star safety, Budda Baker.

In addition to those bone-crushing hits of his, he also has great awareness, as he had 2 interceptions on the season, as well as 3.5 tackles per game and one pass breakup.

While the Roadrunners had a building year in 2020, the coaching staff believes that they have the right pieces as they move forward for a chance to do some special things, and the Hernandez twins are right in the thick of it all.

The youngsters are also a part of the My Recruits program, which we have previously written on. Coach Lou Perrone and his staff do a terrific job in getting guys recruited and helping them with a family first approach. Coach Perrone gives his guys the knowledge and insights they need to succeed.
