Javier Robalino was born in Staten Island, New York. He founded Huracan FC on August 1, 2016 in the Tampa Bay area.

 

Robalino, 51, served as an assistant coach for the NY/NJ MetroStars (now NY Red Bulls) in MLS from 1999 to 2002. During this time, the MetroStars were the first team in MLS history to develop a reserve team and academy. He served as the reserve team head coach and academy coach. He later became the first team equipment manager and in 2002 became the first team tryouts director. During his years with the NY/NJ MetroStars he worked side by side with Head Coach Octavio Zambrano and Juan Carlos Osorio.

 

Robalino, as the reserve team head coach, promoted 10 players to the first team. In 2000 he scouted Rodrigo Farias who went on to play for the reserve team. In 2001, Rodrigo was promoted to the first team and finished the season as MLS rookie of the year.
