SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (KTVU) - 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is sharing his earnings with the people he loves.
Goodwin posted, on social media, the moment he showed his mom and sister the home he bought for them.
Goodwin says his sister Deja, who who has cerebral palsy and is confined to a wheelchair, has been a lifelong inspiration.
Goodwin had a breakout season with the 49ers last year, and signed a 3-year, $20 million contract.
While becoming a breakout star with the 49ers, Goodwin also suffered a tragic loss.
Goodwin and his wife, Morgan, lost their baby boy. Their son died after complications forced a premature birth.
Goodwin went on that day to play in the game with a heavy heart. He caught an 83-yard touchdown pass in Sunday’s 31-21 win over the Giants. It’s the biggest play of the 49ers season and helped the team land their first win.
He blew a kiss to the sky as he crossed the goal line and then dropped to his knees in the end zone. At the time, no one knew the tragic pain he and his wife endured during the early hours of Sunday morning.
