One day after 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin was knocked unconscious and sustained a concussion, he said he was symptom-free and feeling “wonderful.” The 49ers announced their team awards on Monday, and Goodwin was selected as the winner of the organization’s most prestigious award. He won the Len Eshmont Award as the player who exemplifies the inspirational and courageous play of Eshmont, one of the original members of the 49ers. Goodwin recorded career-highs with 56 receptions for 962 yards in his first year with the 49ers after playing his first four NFL seasons with the Buffalo Bills. “It’s been a long season, but it’s been a wonderful journey for me, coming from Buffalo, where I didn’t quite get to showcase all my talent,” Goodwin said. “I’m thankful for the opportunity I had to work with the guys I did this year, to work with Kyle (Shanahan) and play with this team. It meant a lot to me. It showed a lot, not only to other people, but to myself. And it proved to me that I was capable of achieving some of the things I did this year. I’m ecstatic about what’s to come in the future.” With the success on the field, Goodwin also experienced unimaginable losses. He and his wife, Morgan, lost their child from to complications during pregnancy on Nov. 12. Just hours later, he caught an 83-yard touchdown against the New York Giants in the 49ers’ first victory of the season.
