100 day for 49ers AD

mikehill100 resized
New Charlotte 49ers Athletic Director Mike Hill has been on the job for 100 days and has hit the ground running. Here is a letter from Hill to 49ers faithful:
Niner Nation,
What an amazing first 100 days it’s been here at Charlotte — the energy and excitement from Niner Nation has been incredible! Thank you to Chancellor Dubois, the cabinet, and the athletic department staff for helping me during this transition. And a special thank-you to Judy Rose, who has served this wonderful institution for 43 years and has been unbelievably supportive.
We’ve accomplished a lot in the first three months, including hiring one of the nation’s most successful and respected basketball coaches in Ron Sanchez, hiring an absolute superstar in Chris Fuller to oversee external operations, and greeting legions of fans at numerous sporting and special events.
The schedule has been full-throttle, and the reception has been inspiring.
And talk about inspiring – led by our 21-time conference Coach of the Year Bob Olesen, our track and field program is setting the tone for our athletic department, winning C-USA titles at the women’s cross country, men’s indoor, and, most recently, men’s outdoor championships. A school-record four student-athletes earned outdoor track and field all-America honors at the NCAA Championships.
With excitement building for football season, we are adding approximately 2,500 seats to Jerry Richardson Stadium for both the home opener vs. Fordham and the Appalachian State games. We have adjusted ticket sales plans to give our most loyal football fans the first opportunity to purchase high-demand tickets.
After reaching our initial goal of $40 million, we have increased our goal towards the university’s Exponential Capital Campaign to $49 million. To reach that goal we need the support of each and every member! Our fiscal year ends on June 30, so please make a contribution to support our amazing student-athletes by visiting www.charlotte49ers.com/givenow.
We have initiated the process to create an athletic facilities master plan, which will allow us to better assess our current facilities, needs for enhancements, and growth. Once complete, this master plan will serve as a road map as we identify our needs and develop a strategy to raise necessary capital. One step we’ve already taken is the replacement of the Hayward Practice Gym court for our basketball and volleyball programs.
As for the vision for our program, I have met with coaches and staff, student-athletes, stakeholders, students, media and fans.  At each step, we have discussed the culture we want to instill in our program.
First and foremost, we are here for our student-athletes and will prioritize their growth and personal development at every turn. We will conduct business the right way and run the program with integrity. We will actively engage our students, alumni and fans, working hard to enhance their game day experience.
And make no mistake, we are not in this to be ordinary – we are in it to be extraordinary. We expect to be highly competitive in every sport – and we expect to compete for conference championships and NCAA post-season births.
We have established “Gold Standard” as a departmental theme – but it is so much more than a motto.  It is an expectation – for our coaches, for our student-athletes, for our staff and for our fans.  Excellence is our goal. To reach it, everyone must be pulling in the same direction.
On a personal note, my wife, Jess, and I were married in April and have successfully moved into our Uptown home.  Living Uptown allows me to engage our fans on a regular basis and easily meet with members of the corporate community.  Professionally, it is important for me to be situated in the heart of our city and personally, Charlotte’s got a lot to love.  It’s very clear that this city wants us to be successful!
I look forward to the next 100 days of working with you and for you so that this fine institution can realize its fullest potential.  It will take all of us, together, to get to where we want to go.  And we will.
Thank you for the wonderful welcome and Go Niners!
Mike Hill, Director of Athletics

QUOTEABLE:
“I want to just thank (the senior class) for taking a risk and coming to Charlotte to start this program. They laid a great foundation for us and it has a chance to propel us forward as we move into the coming years.” – HC Brad Lambert

The 49ers concluded the 2016 season with a 4-8 overall record; 3-5 in Conference USA. The four wins double the win total of 2015, the 49ers first at the FBS level. The three C-USA wins are the first in school history.

It was the final game for 27 seniors, including 19 members of the program’s First Class.

After going winless in league play in 2015, the 49ers finished 5th of 7 teams in the C-USA East Division and T8th of 13, overall with a 3-5 league mark.

Charlotte had two league games decided by one possession, last year (three-point losses to ODU and UTSA). This year, six of the eight league games were either wins (3) or one-possession losses (3).

Six of Charlotte’s eight losses came to bowl eligible teams. Charlotte also scored a victory over a bowl eligible team (Southern Miss) for the second straight year.

Sr. RB Kalif Phillips established the school career record with 4,020 career rushing yards.

R-Sr. WR Austin Duke established the school career record with 3,437 career receiving yards.

Kalif Phillips and Austin Duke rank 1-2 in touchdowns scored for the 49ers: Phillips has 43 career TDs (41 rushing; 2 receiving) while Duke completed his career with 25 career TDs (24 receiving; 1 rushing).

Kalif Phillips completes his career with 4,504 yards from scrimmage (4,020 rush; 484 rec.), including 1,149 from scrimmage (907 rush; 242 rec.), this season.

Austin Duke notched his 13th career 100-yard receiving game with 115 yards in his finale at UTSA. It is the most receiving yards put up by a 49er against FBS competition. It was Duke’s 4th 100-yard game of the year.

The 115-yard game is the ninth-most in school history. Duke owns each of the top nine performances and 13 of the 16 100-yard receiving games in school history.

Austin Duke had a 76-yard TD reception, matching his longest of the year and the 4th longest in school history. Duke owns each of the 49ers six all-time longest TD receptions.

The 76-yard TD pass from Hasaan Klugh to Austin Duke is the longest TD throw of Klugh’s career. He had a 69-yarder to Duke earlier in the season at FAU.

Klugh finished his first year with the 49ers connecting on 120-of-224 passes for 1356 yards (123.3/gm) and 10 TDs with 3 INT. He was third on the team with 426 yards rushing.

Austin Duke had at least 50 catches in each of his four years, and finishes his career with a school-record 24 career receiving TDs (25 total, 2nd all-time), 252 receptions and a 74.7 per game receiving avg.

QB/RB Matt Johnson completes his 49ers career with a school-record 5,405 yards passing and he added 1,273 career yards rushing.

Three players started over 40 of the 49ers 46 all-time games. DL Larry Ogunjobi is the only player that started all 46 games. DL Brandon Banks made 43 starts and Austin Duke made 41 career starts.

DL Larry Ogunjobi had 0.5 TFL at UTSA to complete his 49ers’ career, fittingly, with a school record 49.0 TFL.

Ogunjobi completes his 49ers career with school records for tackles (217), TFL (49.0) and sacks (13.0).

Sr. LB Nick Cook established a new single-season record with 107 tackles. Cook had at least 8 tackles in each of the last five games and 10 of 12 overall. He ranks 8th in C-USA in tackles.

LB Karrington King had 7+ tackles in four of the last five games, averaging 8.4 tackles over that span. He ranked 32nd in C-USA with 6.1 tackles this year.

Fr. S Ben DeLuca led the 49ers with 10 tackles at UTSA. It was DeLuca’s third game with 10 or more tackles and the 12th double-digit tackle performance by a 49er, this year.

Ben DeLuca ranks second among C-USA freshmen with 5.7 tackles per game.

Charlotte finished the year with an FBS record 302 points scored, surpassing last year’s total of 210.

The 49ers scored 40 TDs (18 rushing; 17 passing; 5 Def/ST).

Charlotte allowed 106 yards rushing to UTSA and completes the regular season ranked third in the league in rushing defense (143.4/gm). Four of the last six opponents were held to 106 yards rushing or less.

Charlotte special teams scored its third TD of the season when Juwan Foggie recovered the punter’s fumble and rambled three yards for the score at UTSA. Earlier in the year, Foggie blocked a punt that was recovered by Ed Rolle in the endzone and Anthony Covington recovered a muffed punt in the endzone. In addition, Terrance Winchester had a Pick Six and Ben DeLuca returned a fumble for a score to give Charlotte five TDs from its defense/special teams.

Charlotte forced a turnover in 11 of 12 games. The lone game without a forced turnover: Temple. Charlotte finished the year with a +8 TO margin (2nd in C-USA).

Charlotte led C-USA through the regular-season with 16 interceptions and had at least one pick in 10 of 12 games.

KR Chris Montgomery finished the season with a single-season record 845 kick return yards and he ranks 4th in C-USA with a 19.7 return avg. He owns the 49ers career record with 1345 return yards.

‘Cats win, 49ers fall

Defense Leads Davidson Past Livingstone 38-12

DAVIDSON, N.C. – In addition to forcing four first-half turnovers, Davidson jumped out to a 38-0 lead en route to a 38-12 victory over Livingstone in non-conference football action Saturday night at Richardson Stadium.

With the win, the Wildcats open the season 2-1 for the first time since the 2011 campaign, while the Blue Bears fall to 1-2.

Davidson, which led 21-0 late in the first quarter, took advantage of two Livingstone special team miscues. Following a failed fake punt, quarterback Stockton McGuire put the ‘Cats up 6-0 with a six-yard run.

Midway through the first, Livingstone punter Tyler Keene mishandled a snap that Thomas Sykes scooped up and took to the end zone for Davidson, the first of two defensive scores.

Along with forcing a combined nine turnovers in their last two contests, the Wildcats’ defense held Livingstone to just 68 yards on the ground, while finishing with six sacks.

McGuire connected with Derek Jones on a 12-yard pass with 3:29 left in the quarter to cap off a seven-play 58-yard drive.

Freshman Preston Grase extended the margin to 30-0 when his picked off Bryan Digsby and returned his first career interception 43-yards for a touchdown.

Keylan Brown, who rushed for 95 yards and a score in Davidson’s win over Kentucky Wesleyan last weekend, led both teams with 87 yards on 19 carries, including an eight-yard touchdown scamper just prior to the half.

Digsby paced the Blue Bears with 201 yards in the air, including 102 on eight catches to wide receiver Everett Ransom.

The Wildcats open Pioneer Football League play next Saturday, Sept. 24 when they visit Valparaiso. Kickoff from Brown Field is slated for 1 p.m.

Eastern Michigan Upends Charlotte, 37-19

Eastern Michigan took the early lead on the 49ers (1-2) and thwarted Charlotte’s comeback efforts with key turnovers to grab a 37-19 victory at Jerry Richardson Stadium.

The Eagles (2-1) went ahead 7-0 in the first quarter and led 17-3 at the half before forcing two third quarter turnovers to push ahead 34-6.

The 49ers rallied with two fourth quarter scores and had another drive stopped in the red zone on fourth down.

Statistically, Charlotte and Eastern Michigan looked similar. Eastern Michigan had 357 yards of total offense.  Charlotte had 346.  EMU was better on third down (7 of 13) but Charlotte was 8-of-20 and made up for the slight difference by going 3-of-4 on 4th down.

For the first time this year, however, Charlotte lost the turnover battle – and the Eagles took advantage by stopping the 49ers opening drive of the second half in EMU territory on a fumble and then returning an interception for a TD, late in the quarter.

“Going into halftime, I was really proud and thought we had things under control,” head coach Brad Lambert said.  In the second half, we did a few things we can’t do and gave up some plays.  The biggest thing is that we need to clean up mistakes.”

Charlotte was without starting running back Kalif Phillips, who is nursing a hamstring injury and did not dress.  Freshman Robert Washington filled in nicely however, rushing for 120 yards on 20 carries.  It was Washington’s first 100-yard game and the second-most rushing yards ever by a true freshman for the 49ers.

Hasaan Klugh came off the bench to replace starting QB Kevin Olsen, who left the game late in the third due to cramps.  Klugh threw fourth-quarter TD passes to Workpeh Kofa and TL Ford II to close the gap.  It was Ford II’s second straight game with a TD reception while Kofa made his first career TD catch.  The two TD passes were the first of Klugh’s career.

“We never give up,” said Ford, “but when we have penalties and mental mistakes like we did tonight, it makes things that much harder.”

EMU took a 7-0 lead late in the first quarter when Ian Eriksen capped the game’s first substantial drive with a five-yard TD run.  Charlotte answered with a 29-yard field goal to open the second quarter to make it 7-3.  An EMU field goal push the lead back to 7, 10-3.

Jaylen Pickett pulled down his first interception and returned it to the Charlotte 20 to set up the Eagle second TD of the game:  a five-yard pass from Todd Porter to Nigel Kirby to make it a 17-3 game at the half.

After forcing a fumble just across midfield, the Eagle struck quick with a 49 yard TD pass from Porter to Johnnie Niupalau.  Porter was 24-for-31 for 285 yards and had three passes of 30 or more yards.

“They came in and played really hard.  They had some guys make good plays and I thought the quarterback played well and made timely plays.” Lambert said.  “There were too many deep balls in our secondary.”

After Niupalau’s 49-yard TD grab put the Eagles ahead, 24-3, Charlotte drove to the EMU eight but had to settle for another Stephen Muscarello field goal to make it 24-6.  EMU’s 36-yard FG made it 27-6 before Pickett pulled down his second INT of the game and ran it back 36 yards for the touchdown.

Trailing 34-6 at the end of three, Klugh found Kofa for a 10-yard TD early in the fourth quarter.  After the defense forced a three-and-out, Klugh completed an 11-play; 83-yard drive with a 28-yard TD strike to Ford II, to make it 34-19 with 9:42 left.

The Eagles chewed up over six minutes on their next drive and kicked a field goal to increase the lead to 37-19 with just over three minutes remaining.

Charlotte’s final drive went 45 yards on nine plays, but the 49ers could not convert on 4th down at the EMU 11 in the final minute.

Olsen finished the game with 14-of-28 passing for 123 yards and his first two interceptions of the season.  Klugh was 9-of-15 for 66 yards and two TDs.  Austin Duke led the 49ers receivers for the third straight game with 84 yards while Ford II finished with 51.

Senior LB Nick Cook led the 49ers for the third straight game in tackles, with 12 while r-Sr. Larry Ogunjobi added a season-high 8 tackles and 1 tackle for loss.

With his 12 tackles, Cook surpassed 100 takedowns in his 14-game career to become the fastest 49er to reach the milestone.

“That’s not something I even think about,” Cook said.  “Whatever my stats were, I made plenty of mistakes tonight, too.  It takes all 11 guys on the field.”

As for mistakes, those were chief on Lambert’s mind as the game concluded.

“We have a lot of things we need to correct,” he said.

Charlotte closes out its non-conference season next week at Temple in a 12 noon game that will be televised by ASN, locally on WCCB Charlotte.
