Colin Kaepernick

Colin Rand Kaepernick (born November 3, 1987) is an American football quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers of the National Football League. He played college football at Nevada.

Kaepernick was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He is the youngest of Rick and Teresa Kaepernick’s three children (brother, Kyle, and a sister, Devon). Kaepernick is of biracial descent (European and African), having been adopted by the Kaepernicks as an infant. He lived in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin until age 4, before moving to Turlock, California. He lists Turlock as his home town where he attended elementary, junior, and John H. Pitman High School there. He is also a member of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity.

Kaepernick, who graduated in Dececember 2010 with a bachelors degree in Business Management, is known to have high character and a relatively unassuming personality off the field, as evidenced by an incident that took place during the summer of 2010 interning at a University of Nevada-themed sports apparel shop in Reno. One woman came in and, completely unaware she was speaking to Kaepernick, asked him to find his jersey. A manager at the store would later recall, "Colin said, ‘I’m pretty sure it’s No. 10, and it’s right over here.’ He rang up her purchase and everything."
