San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is one of the brightest young stars in the league. Kaepernick burst on to the scene after taking over for an injured Alex Smith and he never looked back as he helped to lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl appearance against the Baltimore Ravens that they eventually lost.
On the plus side, the 49ers are still one of the top teams in the NFL and their quarterback is now getting the star treatment.
Just how popular has Kaepernick become? Well, he got to meet First Lady Michelle Obama. That is a pretty big deal.
Kaepernick shared a photo of his meeting with the First Lady on his Instagram account and he got Mrs. Obama to join in the “Kaepernicking” craze that caught on while the 49ers were deep in their run.
“I got the opportunity to meet one of the greatest women in the world, the first lady @first_Obama and even got her #Kaepernicking,” Kaepernick posted as a caption to go along with the picture.
Here is the photo Kaepernick shared on his Instagram account:
This is just the beginning for Kaepernick. He came on late in 2012 and with a full offseason to prepare as the starter we should expect big things from the young star quarterback this season.
