Colin Kaepernick becomes immortal in Nevada

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will be inducted into the Nevada Hall of Fame.

The university made the announcement on Friday, explaining that defensive end Dontay Moch and forward Vai Taua were also among the inductees in 2020.

In 2010, he guided the Wolf Pack to a 13-1 record.

School basketball players Luke Babbitt, Dellena Criner and Armon Johnson will also be inducted.

The institution usually holds a dinner to honor its former athletes, but due to COVID-19, this dinner has been postponed.

Kaepernick was a starter in Nevada for four years. He made 19 touchdown passes in his first season while being intercepted three times. He also had 593 yards with his legs, getting six majors.

In his second season, Kaepernick stood out on the floor. He’s amassed over 1,100 yards in his last three seasons in Nevada while scoring 53 touchdowns.

Coming out of college, he had maintained an 82-24 touchdown ratio.

He was the 36th player selected in the draft by the 49ers in 2011 and replaced Alex Smith in the 2012 season as a starter.

Kaepernick has not played in the NFL since the 2016 season when he protested social inequities and police brutality in the United States, dropping his knee to the ground during the national anthem
