New Orleans last summoned me in 1992, and the experience involved the Turlock Journal!
I remember Colin Kaepernick as a tall, skinny kid with a rifle for an arm. We grew up competing against each other for the better part of eight years, me with the Turlock 49ers and Turlock Bulldogs and him with the Turlock Vikings and Pitman Pride. In those days Colin wasn't the fleet footed runner he is today-but he was still a threat.
