Educational Background: What University did Colin Kaepernick go to?

Colin Kaepernnick Education

Colin Kaepernick has proven one thing lately: he doesn’t always stand up for what he believes in. Recently at the center of American controversy, this 49ers player has chosen to sit out The Star-Spangled Banner.  He aims to use this anti-patriotic display to draw attention to racial inequality and police brutality across all fifty states.

Before his actions drew the attention of red-blooded Americans everywhere, and spread to other players in the NFL, Kaepernick led his team to Super Bowl XLVII in 2012. Long before recruiters came knocking at his door, Colin dreamed of football.

We will be examining the high school and college education of Colin Kaepernick on this edition of EduReview Educational Backgrounds.

Colin’s Personal Life

Born in Milwaukee on November 3rd of 1987, He spent a few weeks with his birth mother before being put up for adoption.  He was immediately taken in by Rick and Teresa Kaepernic. He went from being the biracial child of a single mother to the newest member of an upper-class family. Following the rest of his family, a four-year old Colin moved to California at the age of four. By the time he was eight, Colin impressed his local football and baseball league with his throwing power. Colin can seemingly predict the future. In fourth grade, he penned a letter that described his future as starting quarterback for the 49ers.

Where Did Colin Get His Education?

When he entered John H. Pitman High School, he proved himself a versatile star both on and off the green; he was a first team all-district, all-conference, and all-academic selection. His first recruitment round went less than swimmingly. After graduating from high school, Colin enrolled at the University of Nevada on a football scholarship. After the team’s longtime starter suffered a concussion, Kaepernick took over as the school’s number one quarter back. Colin valued his college education more than sports; this is easily proven by one choice. He turned down an offer from the Chicago Cubs to finish his degree in business management. When the 49ers came calling after his graduation, Colin did not make the same choice twice.

    How is kneeling disrespectful? Splain that Lucy! I don’t think you can. It is his right as a US Citizen to peacefully protest and honestly his is one the most respectful protest I have seen. He’s certainly nothing like those pasty tiki-torch wielding white supremacists that descended on Charleston NC last year!

    He has the first amendment right to hate the country that gave him so much. I for one am not voting socialist in any election so all those who hate America and want it to turn into an America hating socialist republic can get out. venezuela is good place to live for rich people. Your wasting your breath here.

    Way to put a Fascist, racist spin on an educational bio. Despicable.

    Colin…there are other ways to demonstrate beside disrespecting the flag and what it stands for. Alot of soldiers both black and whit died to make and keep this country strong. And, by the way, they also gave you and all of us the freedoms we have. What other country can give you the money you made in football? I don’t agree with everything that happens in our country, but the last thing I would do is disrespect old glory. You’ve never turned down any money you made playing and I could only wish I could make that much at my occupation. Maybe you should join the military and learn some respect. I have a son serving 2nd tour in Iraq , to help keep us free from terror, so what you have done has offended me and millions more.

    Him kneeling is unpatriotic? He is expressing his First Amendment right to Free Speech and saying otherwise is simply false. It also has no place on an education website.
