The Colin Kaepernick haters should address him as a Hall of Famer now because the ex-NFL quarterback is being inducted into his High School’s Hall of Fame in November.
Pitman High School, the Turlock, Calif. program Colin played football, basketball, and baseball for declared it’s giving Kap its most noteworthy respect on Nov. 3. “Colin was chosen, like all the others, for their contribution to the history of athletes here at Pitman,” the school’s A.D., Dave Wells, tells KCRA. “Of course, he was an outstanding athlete and a three-sport star.”
This is sure to ruffle a few feathers considering that many people grow big mad when Kap is involved in anything positive. However, former Turlock mayor says that doesn’t minimize his contributions to the school.
“Colin Kaepernick still has much respect,” says John Lazar, who also once gave Kaep a key to the city of Turlock. “Although citizens differ on his approach, he is still a proud son of Turlock.”
Colin drove his high school to its first-ever playoff win as a senior and was assigned as an All-State player in circles, football, and baseball that same year.
