Last week, Reno Gazette-Journal writer Chris Murray continued his annual list of the top 100 local sports figures. The list factors in only achievements from July 2014 through June 2015.

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick came in at number 17 on the list. Kaepernick played college football for the Nevada Wolf Pack. Last season, he passed for 3,369 yards with 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.

The only other NFL player listed ahead of Kaepernick was Cleveland Browns guard Joel Bitonio, who was ranked at number 14.
