Charlotte 49ers Welcome Many Newcomers

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -The Charlotte 49ers are getting ready for their home opener against Duke. However, they have a lot of work to do before then.

The Niners return 13 starters, including one of the most talented quarterback/wide receiver combos in the conference in seniors Chris Reynolds and Victor Tucker. They also have a lot of new faces on the team that head coach Will Healy says will need to make immediate impacts.

“We’re going to have to play some guys who weren’t here a year ago,” Healy said. “You’re going to be counting on a lot of new guys, just like you’re counting on a lot of new staff. I had them raise their hands last night in the team meeting, who was not here last fall, and it’s half the room.”
