Marquise Goodwin Surprises Mother and Sister With a New Home

You may want to grab your tissues.

On Thursday, Marquise Goodwin pulled off the ultimate heartfelt surprise. The San Francisco 49ers receiver purchased his mother, Tamina and sister, Deja a new house in his home state of Texas.

In an Instagram post, Goodwin rolled out the red carpet and blind folded the two before surprising them in the driveway of their new residence. Goodwin has been vocal of the past hurdles he and his family have faced. He acknowledged his mother with the caption, "I know mama… I can feel your energy in this video! All the obstacles WE have overcome… Man…I love you so much mama… thank you for EVERYTHING! Especially blessing me with a sis like my Deja!!!"

It's been quite the year for Goodwin and the season has yet to begin. Coming off of a career year just shy of his first 1,000-yard season, Goodwin inked a three-year contract extension with the 49ers in March.

In January, Goodwin was awarded the 49ers most prestigious honor, the Len Eshmont Award, which is presented to the player who displays inspirational and courageous play. During the 49ers Week 10 matchup against the New York Giants, Goodwin paid tribute to his late son following a 83-yard touchdown that helped the team claim its first win of the season. Last month he was presented the Professional Football Writers of America 2018 George Halas Award, given to a player, coach or staff member who overcomes the most adversity to succeed.

Take a look at his mother's emotional reaction to the surprise.
