For freshman Ben Udine, it has always been a dream to compete on the same basketball court his brothers, class of 2014 alumni Ross and Max, played on several years ago. This year, his dream became a reality.

“Watching them when I was younger set the stage to live up to their legacy, and I knew I wanted to play for [The Bay] just like they did,” Udine said. “My family and I have been talking about this for a long time, so to see it come true is pretty awesome.

In My Opinion: Kaepernick brings light to racism

BY DREW SISKIND

SPORTS EDITOR

In the past two months, one of the nation’s biggest headlines has been San Francisco 49ers’ backup quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who, in protest of racial injustice, has not stood for the National Anthem before games.

Kaepernick, along with fellow NFL players who have joined his movement, has received every response imaginable for his continued action, ranging from praise to hateful condemnation.

But the hatred has overshadowed the support.

According to ESPN, a poll by E-Poll Marketing Research recently named Kaepernick the NFL’s most disliked player. The social justice activist beat out alleged rapist Jameis Winston by a margin of 7 percent. The top five was rounded out by Ndamukong Suh, who has been fined multiple times for dangerously violent play; Tom Brady, an accused cheater; and Ben Roethlisberger, another accused rapist.
