When it comes to sports, there are a few dreams young players usually have while growing up. One, is playing in the pros and two, is making the cover of Sports Illustrated.

On Tuesday, that dream came true for Niners star Colin Kaepernick. Hot off a record-breaking game against Green Bay last weekend, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback is gracing the cover of SI this week.

They also had a little fun with the cover. In the lower left corner, they cut out a picture of a shouting coach Jim Harbaugh and wrote the caption, "Shout it from the mountaintop, Jim -- You were dead on about Colin Kaepernick!"
