49ers Begin Preparations for 2014 Season

The Charlotte 49ers are one of those teams who hit the gridiron Wednesday to start preparations for the 2014 season.

Year two of Charlotte 49ers football got started Wednesday morning with the first practice of the season for Coach Brad Lambert's team.

8 starters are back on both sides of the ball including an offense that returns QB Matt Johnson, leading rusher Kalif Phillips, and leading WR Austin Duke.

They went 5-6 in Year 1 and one thing coach knows has to improve for this team to take the next step is dominance on both the offensive and defensive side of the field.
