Texas Longhorns senior wide receiver Marquise Goodwin, playing for the North squad, led all receivers in receptions with five at this year's Senior Bowl. The South won the game, 21-16. The 2012 Valero Alamo Bowl offensive MVP was one of the draft-eligible seniors competing in the all-star game on Saturday afternoon at Ladd-Peebles Stadium in Mobile, Ala.
For the game, Goodwin had five catches for 44 yards and returned two punts for 30 yards.
On the North's first drive, Goodwin was targeted three straight times and caught the first two passes for 12 yards and a North first down. On the third play, North Carolina State's Mike Glennon overthrew Goodwin who had beaten his man on a fly pattern. The drive stalled and the North had to punt.
On the North's second possession, Goodwin again sparked his squad when Glennon hit him for 10 yards and a first down on the first play of the drive. But that drive also stalled and the North was forced to punt again.
In the second quarter, Goodwin was able to showcase his punt returning ability by returning a South punt for 18 yards.
The South led 14-0 at the half, but the North took their first possession and drove 72 yards and scored on a 20-yard run by UCLA's Johnathan Franklin. Goodwin had a 10-yard catch on the drive's sixth play.
Goodwin had another punt return for 11 yards and an 11-yard reception late in the third quarter. The North added a field goal to make the score 14-10 to start the fourth quarter.
Both teams added touchdowns in the fourth quarter, but the North's two-point conversion failed to make the final score, 21-16.
