Dave Hernandez | JV Head Coach

Coach Hernandez enters the 2024 season as his 23rd year of coaching. After coaching in the Eastlake Little League and select teams for 19 years, Dave joined the Eastlake High School Wolves Baseball program as the C-Team Head Coach in 2016.  After two seasons, he decided to step away from coaching.  Then in 2022, Coach Smith reached out to see if Dave would consider coming back as the Assistant Coach for the JV team.  Coming onboard, Dave then became the Head JV Coach in 2023.  Benefitting from the large talent pool that Eastlake has, Coach Hernandez has a .620 winning percentage at Eastlake.

On the personal side, Dave's biggest supporter is his wife of 32 years, Amy.  Dave & Amy have three children who all attended Eastlake.  The Hernandez house is definitely a WSPS home.
