(KSTU) — Colin Kaepernick has been named the new face for Nike’s 30th anniversary “Just Do It” campaign.

The football quarterback, who is currently a free agent, is known for taking a controversial knee in 2016 during the U.S. National Anthem before NFL games in protest to what he believed were injustices against African Americans.

The announcement of the campaign came with a photo and a quote, which said, “believe in something, even if it means sacrificing everything.”
