Colin Kaepernick has been named this year’s recipient of the Sports Illustrated Muhammad Ali Legacy Award.

According to Sports Illustrated, Kaepernick is receiving the honor due to his “steadfastness in the fight for social justice, for his adherence to his beliefs no matter the cost.” Each year, this award is given to someone who “embodies the ideals of sportsmanship, leadership and philanthropy and has used sports as a platform for changing the world.”

Congratulations Colin! No one, is more deserving of this award. It’s amazing to see that your sacrifices have not been in vein, and that you are being recognized for the right reasons. Thank you for all that you’ve done!
