November 13, 2017
On Sunday, San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin scored an 83-yard touchdown and fell to his knees in the endzone.
After the game, Goodwin announced that he had lost his infant son just hours before kickoff.
“I just wanna thank those who’ve genuinely prayed for @morganakamomo and myself through out this pregnancy,” he wrote on Instagram. “Unfortunately we lost our baby boy due to some complications, and 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. The pain (physically, mentally, and emotionally) that she has endured is unbelievable. Please pray for the Goodwin family.”
After scoring the touchdown, Goodwin immediately sank to his knees before bringing his head to the turf as his teammates surrounded and supported him.
