Roberto Hernandez is from San Salvador, El Salvador and comes from a family that loves sports. Roberto finished Law School in 2014, but archery is his passion and he decided to become a full time archer. He is currently shooting full time as well as a volunteer coach of the junior team, because he wants to give back to his country and pass on some of the knowledge that he has learned throughout his 15 years of archery practice. Roberto joined the Team Hoyt Pro Staff in 2010.
