GQ announced today that San Francisco 49ers footballer Colin Kaepernick is the winner of their Style Wars. The chic athlete competition pitted football players Victor Cruz (New York Giants), Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers), Eric Decker (New York Jets), Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals), Arian Foster (Houston Texans), Earl Thomas (Seattle Seahawks), Michael Crabtree (San Francisco 49ers), Demarco Murray (Dallas Cowboys), Donte Whitner (Cleveland Browns), Eric Ebron (Detroit Lions), and Randall Cobb (Green Bay Packers) against each other as the best dressed in the NFL. The competition was decided by votes on GQ‘s.com’s user-generated platform, “HowGQRU” from September 4th through October 15th. Kaepernick (who we’ve never heard of until today) will be awarded $10,000 for his charity, Camp Taylor, which helps young people and families of children with heart disease. A quick Google search of this guy and we can see why he won…We’re a little embarrassed that we missed his GQ and VMAN covers, and overall existence. Hellooooo, Colin!
