The Charlotte skyline is LIT with 49ers green to show support for the UNC Charlotte Football team and their first bowl game in program history. This season, Charlotte became bowl-eligible for the first time since joining the FBS in 2015. The program went 7-5 this year under Coach Will Healy. This is Healy's first season with the 49ers.
On Wednesday, Niner's players brought the gold standard to the Bahamas as they shared the fun of football with the kids of Nassau. In collaboration with the Bahamas Bowl and USA Football, the players hosted a skills clinic with dozens of bright-eyed youth.
