Hours after losing unborn child, National Football League player scores emotional touchdown

Hours after losing unborn child, National Football League player scores emotional touchdown

Given his faith, it's not surprising how Goodwin explained how he played Sunday hours after his wife, Morgan, delivered their stillborn son at 19 weeks because of complications. "I think it speaks more about her character than mine".

The Goodwins are spending the 49ers bye week with family members in Texas, where he and his wife were University of Texas track stars. "I felt joy in holding my baby even though it was a sad moment", Morgan said. The couple also has been overwhelmed by the support and compassion they've received and wanted to offer a message of strength and resolve to those dealing with their own misfortunes.

Goodwin made the tragic announcement on Instagram, and in the game, he scored an 83-yard touchdown before dropping to his knees for an emotional celebration. "Morgan and I appreciate all the love that we've gotten".

"We do have a lot of people that are following us through our journey".

"We didn't realize that sharing our journey with this baby would gain this many people supporting us", he said, according to 95.7 The Game. "So we can maybe help people who've dealt with similar things that we have gone through or learn things from people who've been through our situation".

But Goodwin chose to play, helping San Francisco get its first win of the season.

Goodwin hadn't slept after spending the night by his wife's side and he was about to play in a professional football game wholly unprepared, save for the two most important influences in his life: his faith and his wife. You don't want someone just to tell it to you because that's what you want to hear as a coach.

49ers coach Kyle Shanahan praised Goodwin for doing so well despite the emotions he had inside of him.

Before the game, Goodwin shared his tragedy with a handful of players, including his fellow receivers, safety Eric Reid and his cousin, safety Adrian Colbert. "I'm grateful that I was able to play in the game and get a touchdown". You want someone to tell it to you because they mean it.

"Never stop believing", Goodwin said via Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. "He's just a genuine dude, and it was awesome to have him have that big touchdown".

In the wake of their newborn son's death, Marquise and Morgan Goodwin are leaning on each other. The 49ers next play November 26 against the Seahawks following their bye week, and Colbert's status is unknown. "The reward will last longer than the pain".
