Q&A: Witman Hernandez

CORTLAND, N.Y. -  The State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) did its Q&A with this week's Men's Soccer Offensive Athlete of the Week, Whitman Hernandez.

Hernandez exploded for four goals while adding one assist to lead Oneonta to a 7-1 rout of Potsdam this past Saturday. Hernandez's outburst made him the 13th player in program history to record four goals in a game and the first since 2009. The junior's nine points in the match made him only the fourth player in program history to reach that mark, the first since 1986.
