As a citizen of Turlock I want to express a big THANK YOU to Colin Kaepernick.
Colin, you may not have won Super Bowl XLVII, but you are a real winner in so many other ways. With your focus, determination and positive attitude, you are a great role model for our young people — and the not-so-young as well. This is true even without the amazing things you've accomplished on the football field in the past few years.
Your leading the Niners to the play-offs and the Super Bowl has brought much pride, unity, and excitement to our community — a positive focus for us all.
It's been quite a ride. We can hardly wait to see what you do next year!
