Niners in pro soccer

#1

So, as argued in past threads, I think it is still obvious that soccer is a growing sport in the US, and I think this is a good place to recognize the professional players that graduated from Charlotte.

To kick it off heres an article some of you may have already seen from Charlotte49ers.com about Floyd Franks who scored his first career goal for the Chicago Fire after playing only five games with two starts.

best of luck to him - and I hope to continue to see a rise in Niners in professional sports.

I read that one of the Charlotte Eagle was a Niner.

Former Niner Brandt Bronico is having success in MLS. He just signed a contract extension with the Chicago Fire. See the link below.
