49ers Receiver Marquise Goodwin Scores Emotional Touchdown Hours After Losing His Child

49ers Receiver Marquise Goodwin Scores Emotional Touchdown Hours After Losing His Child

"I have so much respect for him, to come out here and still play, with the hurt that he had in his heart, and to ball out".

The sporting world witnessed the San Francisco 49ers winning their first game of the season on Sunday.

Goodwin had Giants' corner Janoris Jenkins beat, and ran the last 20 or so yards to the end zone alone.

It was an emotional moment.

"Unfortunately, we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and had to prematurely deliver him early this morning around 4 a.m.", Goodwin wrote.

But local media report that Goodwin didn't linger after the game, leaving to be with his family.

He blew a kiss to the sky as he crossed the goal line and then dropped to his knees in the end zone. Former wide receiver Stevie Johnson, a former teammate of Goodwin's with the Bills, said on Twitter he was "praying for you and your fam", adding "We send you all our love and support". Goodwin has shown tremendous strength in his performance as a player, but also as a father and a husband, on Sunday.

"Today, I had to deliver my precious baby boy early this morning due to preterm labor", she wrote.

Both Goodwin and his wife attended the University of Texas at Austin and they Wednesday in February of 2016. "Despite our loss, my hubby kept grinding, scored his son a touchdown & got our first "W" of the season".

The athlete concluded the post by asking for prayers: "Please pray for the Goodwin family".
