Colin Kaepernick Complete Bio & Career

Colin Kaepernick started playing football at the age of eight and was also a talented basketball and baseball player. He attended John H. Pitman High School in Turlock and practiced all three sports at the local school teams. After signing up in 2009 for the MLB Draft, the Entry Draft for Baseball League MLB, and having been selected as the 1310th player by the Chicago Cubs on the 43rd round, he decided not to sign the contract and to focus on his football career. He played at the University of Nevada, Reno for the Wolfpacks College Football. He quickly established himself as a versatile quarterback, effective in both running and passing games: he scored passes for 2000 yards for three consecutive seasons and ran 1000 yards, which was an NCAA record.
He was selected in the 2011 NFL Draft in the second round as the 36th player from the 49ers San Francisco. In his rookie season, 2011 he was rarely used and threw only five passes.  He made his first game against the Chicago Bears from the start and played so well (16 out of 23 passes, 246 yards in space, 2 touchdowns). He immediately led San Francisco into the playoffs and not only won his first playoff game against the Green Bay Packers but also set with 181 running yards a new NFL record for a quarterback. He is the 16th player to have scored at least 180 yards in a play in the playoffs.
In the 2013 season, he began his team with a record of twelve wins and four defeats in the playoffs. He scored 21 touchdown passes and threw eight interceptions. In the running game, he scored four touchdowns in the regular season. The 2014 season was an average for the 49ers and also for him. With eight wins and eight losses, they refrained the playoffs. He threw 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions this season at 3369 yards. In the 2015 season, Blaine Gabbert replaced him after only two wins in the first eight season games as starting quarterback. After the 2016 season, he was released to the Free Agency and had issues finding a new club. The reason for these issues slightly his are political statements in his pro career assumed while on the other hand showed with his performance. In April 2020, it was rumored that Colin has been signed in by New York Jets.
