49ers’ Marquise Goodwin Plays Just Hours After Losing Son At Birth
Praying for his family
By Doug Lazy on November 13, 2017
This is incredibly heartbreaking. Yesterday Marquise Goodwin caught an 83 yard pass from CJ Beathard for a touchdown, giving the 49ers a 10-6 lead in the second quarter, the largest lead in a game this season and the longest reception since 2005. Goodwin had a very emotional reaction on the sideline, pointing to the sky and falling to his knees. That’s because around 4 that morning, Goodwin posted on Instagram that he and wife Morgan had lost their son at birth, writing “(We) had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4 a.m. Although we are hurt, I am grateful for the experience and grateful that God blessed me with a wife as courageous and resilient as Morgan… please Pray for the Goodwin family.”
Even still, Goodwin decided to play and ended up making a big difference for the previously defeated 9ers.
