    Entering their third season in the FCS, Charlotte started 7 whites in 2015 and 5 last year. Ex-Miami QB, and brother of Panthers TE Greg Olsen, Kevin Olsen, started for the team last year but was indicted on rape charges and dismissed. A quotaback has replaced him, but the starters will remain at 5 again this year. In what is literally the strangest racial starting 22 make up I have seen in several years of write ups, four of these starters will be on the defensive side of the ball. Sophomore starting S Ben Deluca will be a name to track for the coming year. Not much to root for on this deep that probably won't be contending for anything anytime soon.

    Offense -
    LG - Wolfgang Zacherl

    Defense -
    DE - Nick Carroll
    NT - Tyler Fain
    LB - Jeff Gemmel
    S - Ben Deluca

    Notable back ups include QB Brooks Barden, H-Back Ryan Carriere, LT Josh Snapper, LG Luke Prevette, RG Trevor Stacy, and LB Sean Bernard.

    Deluca will be interesting to watch. He is a very rare white player who was able to start at db his freshman year - hopefully he continues to get better

    Finished Sophomore campaign with 102tkls and led nation in forced fumbles with 5! He SHOULD be on NFL Draft Boards going into next season!
