Colin Kaepernick is set to be inducted into the University of Nevada Athletics Hall of Fame, according to Fox News.
Before going to the NFL, Kapernick played four years at Nevada, where he had 10,098 passing yards and 82 touchdown passes.
“The 2020 Hall of Fame class represents some of the best of the best in Wolf Pack history,” Athletics Director Doug Knuth revealed in an official statement.
“This is an incredible collection of accomplished student-athletes and we can’t wait for the opportunity to welcome them back to campus and celebrate their careers.”
From Fox News:
According to the school, Kaepernick has not been signed by a team since opting out “in what appears to many observers to be a reaction to his civil rights activism.” Kaepernick did work out for NFL scouts in his own private event after spurning the league over an injury waiver issue.
Kaepernick also launched the Know Your Rights campaign in his absence from the NFL and was a recipient of the 2020 Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope award. He started an essay series on Medium and has repeatedly called for abolishing police.
He will be inducted into the Hall of Fame alongside Luke Babbitt, Dellena Criner, Armon Johnson, Dontay Moch and Vai Taua.
