About Marquise
A jack-of-all-trades, Marquise Goodwin not only does it all, he does it all very well and has done so at a young age. Goodwin qualified for the London Olympic Games following his junior season as both a track athlete and wide receiver for the football team at the University of Texas. He qualified for the 2011 World Outdoor Championships at just 20 years old. He made quick transitions following international competition back to the football field the last two years. In three seasons with the Longhorns, Goodwin has made 16 starts along with catching 91 passes for 975 yards and three touchdowns. Competing for Rowlett High School (Rowlett, Texas), Goodwin twice was selected the Texas Gatorade Track & Field Athlete of the Year while winning a total of seven Texas 5A state championships (long jump (3), triple jump (2), 4x100m (2)). Goodwin participated in the 2013 NFL Combine where he recorded the fastest 40-yard dash time of any player at 4.27 seconds, which was .03 seconds off Chris Johnson's all-time record of 4.24. Competing as a high school senior in the senior division at 2009 USA Outdoors, Goodwin set the national high school record in placing fifth (8.18m/26-10). Goodwin also won both a USA Junior and World Junior title. Passing on his remaining jumps in prelims and the final, he took just one jump to win the USA Junior Outdoor title in 2009.
