OLYMPIC PEDIGREE TO THE NEXT LEVEL

Posted Mar 8, 2013

After a summer of competing in the 2012 London Olympics, Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin takes his elite jumping and running ability back to the football field.

INDIANAPOLIS – The 2013 NFL rookie class will include hundreds of athletes that have played on some of the brightest stages in sports.

 

No one though can say they competed on the grandest of stages like Texas wide receiver Marquise Goodwin.

 

This past summer Goodwin was across the pond competing in the long jump portion of the 2012 London Olympics.

 

“It’s definitely one of the highlights of my life,” Goodwin said of the Olympics.  “It was a once in a lifetime opportunity.  I saw a lot of faces, different people from different countries.  I got a lot of culture there.  It was a great experience.”

 

For now though, the track cleats are left in the locker for Goodwin and the pads are back on his shoulders.

 

The electric wide receiver is trying to show NFL personnel that he is a “football player” that never truly got the opportunity to showcase his skills at Texas.

 

“I’m really looking to prove I’m more than just a speed guy, that I can run routes,” Goodwin said at this year’s NFL Combine.  “It’s all about the opportunity.  The times I was given opportunity and the ball was in my hands, I did something with it.

 

“I’m a football guy that just happens to jump really far.”

 

During his four years in Austin, Goodwin showed flashes of 10-second 100-meter dash speed but his accolades came mainly in track and field.

 

Goodwin captured two NCAA long jump championships and showed off that athleticism by running the fastest 40-yard dash (4.27) at this year’s combine.

 

In his final collegiate game with the Longhorns, Goodwin was named Alamo Bowl MVP after a 64-yard rushing touchdown and 36-yard game winning touchdown reception.

 

He carried that performance into the Senior Bowl where he impressed scouts during practice and went on to catch five passes for 44 yards in the game, while also seeing time on special teams.

 

The Olympic pedigree will never be questioned for Goodwin, and now he is ready to answer those that doubt hits ability on the gridiron.

 

“Tracks guys just have linear speed but I have proved I have more than linear speed,” Goodwin said.

 

“I have really been capable of doing what I did at the Senior Bowl.  As I said earlier it’s all about opportunities.”
