Who is Colin Kaepernick?
Colin Rand Kaepernick was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin USA, on 3 November 1987 – his zodiac sign is Scorpio and he holds American nationality. He’s probably still known best for the time he spent playing for the San Francisco 49ers competing in the National Football League (NFL).
Colin was raised in Fond du Lac in Wisconsin, with his brother Kyle and sister Devon. His African-American father and white mother Heidi Russo gave him up for adoption when he was young, and Teresa and Rick Kaepernick chose to adopt him because they had already lost two sons to heart defects. The family eventually moved to California, and Colin was eight years old when he began playing youth football.
He attended John H. Pitman High School at which he also played basketball and baseball, while the Central California Conference named him Most Valuable Player (MVP). Upon matriculating in 2006, he was offered several baseball scholarships, but only one football scholarship from the University of Nevada, Reno, at which he then enrolled. In 2009, he was drafted to play with the Chicago Cubs in Major League Baseball (MLB), but chose to continue playing football. Colin obtained his Bachelor’s degree in business management in 2011.
On 29 April 2011, Colin signed with the San Francisco 49ers, and played with them until 2016, but failed to find a team to play for in the 2017 season. In October 2017, Colin filed a lawsuit against the NFL claiming that the league’s owners were trying to keep him away from playing because of some of his political comments.
The two sides came to an agreement on 15 February 2019, when Colin also withdrew the lawsuit, however, he hasn’t played in the NFL since.
He’s a philanthropist who has volunteered with various charity organizations, while he’s today a big supporter of the movement Black Lives Matter; two of the non-profit organizations he’s donated money to include Mothers Against Police Brutality, and Know Your Rights Camp.
Colin’s highly religious; he was baptized Methodist and confirmed Lutheran while he went to a Baptist church at least once a week while at college. He has various tattoos related to God, including a scroll with a Bible verse on his right arm.
He has been a vegan since late 2015.
