TURLOCK, Calif. - Sunday's Super Bowl wasn't exactly the quest for six 49ers fans were hoping for, but fans in Turlock say they are still very proud of their hometown hero Colin Kaepernick.
In the small town of about 69,000 people, the 49ers faithful wore their pride on their sleeves Sunday.
Fans gathered at the Larsa Banquet Hall in Turlock to watch their hometown hero Colin Kaepernick lead the San Francisco 49ers in the Super Bowl.
"We're supporting our local kid," said Michael Anderton of Turlock.
"We're proud of him, he's our son, he's Turlock's son," Julie Anderton explained.
Among the crowd was George Odisho, who watched the big game not only as a fan of the local quarterback, but also as a former teammate from Pittman High.
"Seeing my high-school QB score some touchdown's again, it's amazing," said Odisho. "He was a great quarterback. A great leader."
