Colin Kaepernick was honored with his own day in his hometown of Turlock, Calif., on Saturday.
Kaepernick was born in Milwaukee, Wisc., and lived in Fond du Lac, Wisc., until he was four. His family moved to Turlock, a small city in Stanislaus County about 100 miles east of San Francisco, which is where he was raised until leaving for college in Reno.
The city of Turlock is proud of Kaepernick and declared Saturday “Colin Kapernick Day.”
“We hereby encourage all citizens in our community to celebrate the outstanding achievements of the San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick,” said Turlock Mayor John Lazar at a gathering Saturday.
Kaepernick attended Pitman High School in Turlock where he was a 4.0 student and star football, baseball, and basketball player. He was actually a highly-recruited baseball prospect who could throw 92 mph as a pitcher, but he chose to pursue a career in football instead.
Below is a video from KXTL of the city celebrating Colin Kaepernick Day:
