Good­win in­spires

Manawatu Standard - - Sport -

San Fran­cisco 49ers coach Kyle Shana­han would have un­der­stood if Mar­quise Good­win didn’t want to play against the Giants. Shana­han has seen play­ers lose loved ones in days lead­ing up to games and knows the men­tal weight it can carry. He was ready to let speedy re­ceiver Good­win take time with his wife af­ter she pre­ma­turely gave birth to their son, who then died of com­pli­ca­tions. Good­win de­cided to play, help­ing San Fran­cisco get its first win of the sea­son.
