Five Fun Facts About Colin Kaepernick

Filed under: 5 Fun Facts — by Mark on July 29, 2013

Colin Kaepernick lit the football world on fire in 2012 when he staked his claim for being the San Francisco 49ers quarterback of the future. His deep run into the playoffs gave fans of the team a lot of hope too. Here is a look at five fun facts about this great player.

6.9? Not Bad!

Colin Kaepernick left Nevada having averaged 6.9 yards per rushing attempt. This was the highest average anyone in Western Athletic Conference had ever posted for their college career. It broke the previous record of 6.7 yards per carry that had been set by Kevin Lowe who played for Wyoming from 1981 to 1984.

What’s In A Number?

Colin Kaepernick wears number 7 for the San Francisco 49ers. He wore jersey number 10 in college at Nevada. Other 49ers to wear number 7 before him include Jason Baker, Guy Benjamin, Ken Dorsey, Wade Richey, Mark Stevens, and Tony Zendejas.

Hey! Give That Back!

The first player to pick Colin Kaepernick off in the NFL was Patrick Robinson of the New Orleans Saints. It happened in the second quarter on a pass intended for Kyle Williams in a 31-21 San Francisco win.

The First Of Many To Come

The first NFL touchdown pass Colin Kaepernick ever threw came in a 32-7 win over the Bears on November 19, 2012. It happened in the first quarter, went for three yards, put the team up 10-0 at the time, and was caught by Vernon Davis.

The Second To Do It, But That’s Okay

In a 45-31 win over the Packers on January 12, 2013 in the first round of the playoffs, Colin Kaepernick threw for 263 yards and ran for another 181. His 437 total yards of offense that day, after subtracting yards lost due to sacks, was just the second time a 49ers player had ever accumulated more than 400 in a playoff game. The first had been Steve Young who gained 405 total yards of offense in a 1996 loss to the same team, the Green Bay Packers. This gave Kaepernick the team record though and was the sixth highest total in NFL history behind Bernie Kosar, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees (twice), and Dan Fouts.
