  10/13/21 - Shadrick ByrdrSo/2024, Charlotte, 5-09, 210 (DS#999 RB) + More +

  OCT 11 C-USA SPECIAL TEAMS PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Charlotte KR Shadrick Byrd set up a pair of 49ers scores with two long kick-off returns in the 49ers win at FIU on Friday. Byrd had returns of 60 and 57 yards as Charlotte twice opened up drives in FIU territory, which was key for the 49ers as each kick returns followed FIU scores. Byrd totaled 117 yards on his two returns (and added a team-high 80 rushing yards) as the 49ers excelled on special teams on their way to a 2-0 start in C-USA play and a 4-2 start overall, which equals the best start in program history. - C-USA Football

  Chris Reynolds passed for 203 yards and four touchdowns, Shadrick Byrd had two long kickoff returns that led to points and Charlotte defeated Florida International 45-33 on Friday night. An interception returned 39 yards for a touchdown by Jon Alexander with 5:45 left in the game sealed the win for Charlotte, although FIU scored again on a one-play, 75-yard drive in 10 seconds and then appeared to recover an onside kick before losing it to an illegal touch penalty. The 49ers (4-2, 2-0 Conference USA) earned their first road win this season and are off to a 2-0 conference start for the first time. Charlotte has its best start to any season at the FBS level.

Charlotte opened the second half with a crisp, three-minute drive ending with a 22-yard scoring pass down the seam from Reynolds to Victor Tucker, extending their lead to 24-6. Reynolds was 4-for-4 passing on the drive, the TD catch was Tucker's 13th. FIU (1-5, 0-2) responded in two plays, cutting the gap to 24-13 after a 25-yard run up the middle by D'vonte Price and a 50-yard scoring heave from Max Bortenschlager to Kris Mitchell, who caught the ball in stride at about the 6. Price, who finished with 89 yards rushing, became the sixth FIU player to gain more than 2,000 career rushing yards. - Charlotte/AP College Football

  SEPT 27 CONFERENCE USA OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Charlotte QB Chris Reynolds threw four touchdown passes and ran for what proved to be the difference maker in Charlotte's 42-39 win over Middle Tennessee in the 49ers C-USA opener. Reynolds broke the 49ers all-time record for career touchdown passes and set a new school record for touchdown passes in a C-USA game as the 49ers improved to 3-1 for the first time since 2014. Reynolds was 25-for-36 (69.4%) for 339 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions – setting program records for the most 300-yd passing performances and consecutive games with a touchdown pass. This is Reynolds' second Offensive Player of the Week honor of 2021 (Sept. 6). - Conference USA Football

  Chris Reynolds punched the ball four straight times up the middle to score the insurance touchdown with a leap over the pile from the 1-yard line late in the fourth quarter and Charlotte fended off Middle Tennessee 42-39 in a Conference USA slugfest Friday night. The touchdown with four minutes left, on top of four passing touchdowns, made for a career scoring night for Reynolds, who passed for 339 yards. Grant DuBose caught 9 passes for 114 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Calvin Camp broke off a 44-yard scoring run to end the third quarter and racked up 101 yards rushing on 12 carries.

Chase Cunningham threw for 379 yards and five touchdowns to five different receivers for the Blue Raiders (1-3, 0-2) in his first career start. The junior had entered with five career scoring passes and a 150-yard single-game best effort. After four lead changes through the second and third quarters, Charlotte wrapped two touchdowns around a Middle Tennessee three-and-out to grab a 35-24 lead with 10:27 remaining, breaking the pattern of the two teams trading scores. The scoring drives on consecutive possessions, plus Reynolds' winner from the 1, swung momentum to the 49ers (3-1, 1-0). Reed Blankenship was credited with 13 tackles, six solo, to become the all-time leading tackler for Middle Tennessee with 348 career tackles. He entered the game needing 10 to claim the 35-year old mark from Roosevelt Colvard (344, 1983-86). - Charlotte/AP College Football

  Chris Reynolds scored two touchdowns and became Charlotte's career passing leader in a 38-10 victory over Gardner-Webb on Saturday night. Reynolds was 10-of-17 passing for just 103 yards and two interceptions but he still finished the night with 5,469 career passing yards, eclipsing Matt Johnson (2013-16), who finished with 5,405. Charlotte did most of its damage on the ground with 306 yards and rushing touchdowns by four 49ers.

Reynolds scored on a 37-yard run early on and Charlotte never trailed. Short TD runs by Shadrick Byrd and Calvin Camp plus Reynolds' 11-yard TD pass to Jairus Mack made it 28-10 at halftime. ChaVon McEachern added a 13-yard score and Jonathan Cruz a field goal to complete Charlotte's scoring. The 49ers are 2-0 to start a season for the first time since 2015, having beaten Duke 31-28 last week for their first program victory over a Power 5 opponent. Narii Gaither rushed for 82 yards and a touchdown for the Bulldogs. - Charlotte/AP College Football

  SEPT 6 CONFERENCE USA OFFENSIVE PLAYER OF THE WEEK: Charlotte QB Chris Reynolds led the 49ers' dramatic first-ever win over a power five opponent, 31-28, against Duke. The two-time team captain threw for 324 yards and three touchdowns and ran for a fourth in the victory. Reynolds opened the scoring with a 56-yard touchdown strike on the 49ers' first drive. On Charlotte's final two drives of the seesaw battle, Reynolds was 9-of-10 for 161 yards and threw for two touchdowns in the final three minutes to secure the historic win. The game-winner came on an 11-yard touchdown pass to Shadrick Byrd with 33 seconds remaining. Reynolds notched his school-record fourth career 300-yard passing game (324 yards) and figured in all four of the 49ers touchdowns by passing for three and running for a fourth. He also moved to within 39 yards of the 49ers all-time record with 5,366 career passing yards. - Conference USA Football

  Charlotte 49ers coach Will Healy propped his son Eli up on his lap at his postgame news conference and tried to hold back tears as he took in the magnitude of the moment. The 49ers football program had just taken a huge step forward - and he knew it. Chris Reynolds threw for 324 yards with three touchdowns, including an 11-yard scoring strike to Shadrick Byrd with 33 seconds left and Charlotte knocked off Duke 31-28 on Friday night for the school's first ever win against a Power Five team. "I get the emotional side from my dad," Healy said. "He cries about everything and I think I'm becoming like that." There were times Healy wondered if he and his staff were headed in the right direction, and having nine games from their original schedule in 2020 cancelled or postponed due to Covid didn't help matters. The team wound up only playing six games last season - often scrambling to find an opponent to play - and won two of them in what amounted to a lost season. - Charlotte/AP College Football

  05/04/21 - Ben DeLucarSr/2021, Charlotte, 6-1, 202 (DS#24 SS) + More +

  Ben DeLuca, the Bishop Moore safety who went on to big things at UNC-Charlotte, sat through the NFL draft this weekend hoping to hear his name. Prior to the event, however, DeLuca already had made up his mind. If he was drafted, great. If he was not drafted, it wasn't going to have a significant impact on him. DeLuca went undrafted after 259 players heard their phones ring this weekend, but the 6-foot-1, 215-pound DeLuca wasn't concerned. It will just push him harder, the same way many things have pushed him throughout his career. "It's just one of those things that's kinda out of your hands and so you just have to trust God and trust that you're going to go where you need to go," DeLuca said. "I'm excited that part is over and now I just get to go play football." Within an hour of the draft's completion DeLuca was already a member, via free agency, of the Los Angeles Chargers, and he was happy about his choice. - Charlotte Observer

  The 49ers are not short on new faces this season. Multiple Power Five transfers made immediate impacts in the spring game, starting with safety Jon Alexander intercepting James Foster's first pass. Foster turned the ball over twice on the day with the interception and a fumbled snap in the red zone. Kofi Wardlow, a defensive end transfer from Notre Dame, made his presence felt with a sack, fumble recovery and multiple quarterback hurries. Wardlow is making a strong case to start with Markees Watts as the defensive end combo. - Central Michigan Life

  04/09/21 - James FosterrJr/2023, Charlotte, 6-2, 217 (DS#999 QB) + More +

  The Charlotte 49ers' spring practice began last Thursday with all eyes on the quarterbacks. Newcomer James Foster, a former four-star recruit and transfer from Texas A&M, is looking for the first meaningful playing time of his career. He sat behind Kellen Mond in College Station and is now competing with three-year starter Chris Reynolds for the starting role. But 49ers coach Will Healy clarified the position battle status Monday through three spring practices: It's Reynolds' job to lose. "Somebody is going to have to come in and beat him out for that to happen," Healy said regarding Reynolds. "There's nobody I believe in more than him. I'm just proud of who he's become as a leader. Everything you throw at him, he conquers. He's a great guy to have as the face of your program." News broke last December that the 49ers landed their highest-rated transfer ever in Foster. He joins the QB mix with Reynolds, last year's backup Dom Shoffner, and incoming freshman Xavier Williams as the fourth quarterback on scholarship. - Charlotte Observer

  03/27/21 - T.J. MoorerSr/2022, Charlotte, 6-4, 300 (DS#113 OG) + More +

  Offensive lineman T.J. Moore has decided to move on from UF. Less than a week removed from spring football, Florida's offensive line suffered some attrition Thursday with the departure of tackle T.J. Moore. The redshirt senior has entered the NCAA transfer portal and will look to play elsewhere with his remaining eligibility. The 6-foot-5, 309-pound Moore was a reserve lineman in his three seasons of action, appearing in less games last year (four) than he did in 2019 (13). Moore was a consensus four-star recruit and Rivals250 member in the Class of 2017. He's from Charlotte, N.C. and attended Mallard Creek, the same high school as former Florida offensive tackle D.J. Humphries. - Gainesville Sun
