Niners' Marquise Goodwin plays following son's death

Niners' Marquise Goodwin plays following son's death

He was drafted by the Buffalo Bills in the third round of the 2013 NFL Draft, and signed with the 49ers in March 2017 after experiencing a slew of injuries in his first few seasons. Marquise Goodwin scored a touchdown yesterday, helping him lead his team to victory.

He appeared to cross himself and then cradled the ball.

Marquise Goodwin ran the ball 83 yards into the end zone, fell to his knees in prayer and was consoled by his teammates during the emotional celebration.

On Sunday night, Goodwin revealed just why he responded the way he did to his first touchdown as a member of the 49ers.

Goodwin's wife, Morgan Goodwin-Snow, had a premature delivery at 4 A.M. that day, and their son died due to complications following the birth. He said of his wife, Morgan Goodwin-Snow, "The pain (physically, mentally, & emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable".

Goodwin is one of the fastest players in the National Football League, a great sprinter and member of the 2012 U.S. Olympic Team; he was one of three men's long jumpers representing the country.

Both Goodwin and his wife attended the University of Texas at Austin and they Wednesday in February of 2016.

Either way, it's nearly unimaginable that Marquise was on the field on Sunday, just hours after the couple's tragedy. "Despite our loss, my hubby kept grinding, scored his son a touchdown & got our first "W" of the season. Please pray for the Goodwin family".

"I just wanna thank those who've genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo & myself through out this pregnancy".
