How UNC夏洛特分校 got here
The program’s big change was ignited from two people. The first, 麦克希尔. He served as the Executive Associate Athletics Director for External Affairs at the University of 佛罗里达 for 25 years. He was hired on to join UNC Charlotte in early 2018. Hill says watching UNC夏洛特分校 make it to its first bowl game has been something truly special in the community.
In his first year, Hill made the second big change in the 足球 program. He brought on 将希利 in Dec. 2018 to take over the program as head coach. Healy has not disappointed. He coached the team to its first winning record. The 49ers went 7-5今年, winning its last five games of the season.
Hill describes Healy as a coach with an “infusion of energy.” He went on to say Healy has made a huge impact on the students, the campus and the alumni base. Hill believes this energy and impact stemming from Healy lies within the coach’s philosophy.
But it’s also the players of the UNC夏洛特分校 足球 team who have performed at high levels that got them its first bowl game.
On the offensive end, running back Benny LeMay ran for over 1,000 yards on the year, tallying nine touchdowns. Meanwhile, quarterback Chris Reynolds was impressive as well. He threw for nearly 2,400 yards and paired that with 21 touchdowns. Similarly, the defensive end has been shining, as senior Alex Highsmith totaled 14 sacks this season. That number sits right at second in the country. The only player ahead of Highsmith? Ohio State’s Chase Young, a Heisman Trophy candidate.
It’s clear that the UNC夏洛特分校 足球 program has seen a major shift since its beginning in 2012. And through the hard work that has come from coaches and players, the 49ers are in for a fun bowl game.
