NFL players had the opportunity to participate in the NFL’s annual My Cause, My Cleats campaign during a designated home game between Weeks 13-15 of 2018. Goodwin and his teammates represented their respective causes with custom-designed cleats in an effort to raise awareness and funding. March of Dimes leads the fight for the health of all moms and babies, supporting moms throughout their pregnancy, even when everything doesn’t go according to plan.
In June of 2019, Goodwin and his wife, Morgan, partnered with Proctor & Gamble to host a football camp at Travis Air Force Base where Goodwin finished the day mixing his passion of football with track & field, long jumping over some of the campers. Said Goodwin, “I always end the camp with a nice long jump over the kids. It gives them, as well as the parents, a visual of what the event is.”
On August 18th, 2017, as part of 49ers partnership with the Make-A-Wish Foundation, Goodwin spent the day with Austin DeMello, a 12-year-old 49ers fan from San Diego. The two toured the 49ers facility, had lunch together and even played a game of Madden 17, which Austin won. Austin was diagnosed with a brain tumor, but he and his family don’t let that stop him from fighting and enjoying each day. “The fact that Austin’s family comes out here, they’re supporting him, loving him and not giving up on him, I love that,” Goodwin said, “because my mom didn’t give up on my sister.” Goodwin’s older sister, Deja, suffers from cerebral palsy and is unable to walk. Before Austin and his family went back to San Diego, Marquise left him with a message to remember when times get tough. “Just know that you’ve got a lot of people that love you and care about you,” Goodwin told Austin, “including the 49ers.”
During all Week 13 games in 2017, NFL players had the chance to share the causes that are important to them as part of the NFL’s My Cause, My Cleats campaign. “My Cause, My Cleats are inspired by my sister, Deja, who’s life has been impacted by Cerebral Palsy, a congenital disorder of movement, muscle tone or posture,” said Goodwin.
As part of the 49ers annual Thanksgiving celebrations, Goodwin and his teammates visited Cityteam San Jose to serve a holiday feast to over 300 people in need. Guests enjoyed turkey along with all of the usual holiday sides, while getting to know the 49ers.
In 2012, Goodwin won the long jump title at the 2012 U.S. Olympic Trials (27-4.25) and finished 10th in the London Olympics. By qualifying for the Olympics, he became the first collegian to win both the Olympic Trials and the NCAA Outdoor long-jump competition in the same year since 1960. Goodwin was a two-time NCAA long jump champion, seven-time All-American and five-time Big 12 champion in the long jump during his career at the University of Texas.
Goodwin began his track & field career at Rowlett (TX) HS, where he was a two-time World Junior Champion (long jump, 4x100m), seven-time Texas 5A State Champion [long jump (3x), triple jump (2x) and 4x100m (2x)] and two-time Texas Gatorade Track & Field Athlete of the Year.
During the 2013 NFL Combine, Goodwin posted the fastest 40-yd. dash time among all participants, running the distance in 4.27 seconds. His time is tied for the 5th fastest 40-yd. dash ever recorded at the Combine.
