Answer: Colin Kaepernick
Kaepernick burst into the scene in the middle of the 2012 season when the 49ers starting QB at the time – Alex Smith – suffered a concussion. Kaep’s dynamic play forced the team to ride him as their starter for rest of the season, during which he took them to their first Super Bowl appearance in almost two decades. These days he’s better known for not standing up during the United States national anthem as a sign of protest. He aims to raise awareness of police brutality against African Americans.
