The upstart came out of nowhere to lead San Francisco to the Super Bowl last season. What does he have planned for an encore here in 2013?

We put nothing past him.

A high school player who received no Division I college offers, and who wasn't even deemed good enough to start last fall, he does not lack for overconfidence.

Humble beginnings and a diverse background define Colin, adopted by Teresa and Rick Kaepernick, married high school sweethearts from Wisconsin.

Biological and racial differences did not impede the love the Kaepernicks felt for their son. In fact, his dad says they brought them closer together.

"Colin knew from the beginning that he was different," says Rick.

"We'd just say, ‘You've got such beautiful brown skin! We're jealous! We never wanted him to feel he was white or that he should be. Only to be who he needed to be."

That would be a guy with swagger to spare - and SERIOUS tattoos - but don't write him off as a dumb jock or a one-trick pony in the game of life.

Colin graduated high school with a 4.1 GPA before moving on to the University of Nevada, where he was also a good student ... so he's the whole package.

Long and short of it: Expect a lot of Kaepernicking this season. Check out more Colin photos from GQ and the recent ESPN Body Issue as well ..
