A Battle of U-M Goodwin's Tonight on MNF

Dec. 19, 2011

It may be hard to picture now, but imagine a young Jonathan Goodwin with big, framed glasses and a hi-top fade haircut.

That's how his brother remembers him.

Five years Jonathan's senior, Harold Goodwin has also carved out a football life of his own since those humble days in South Carolina.

It's the middle of the season now, so contact between the two brothers isn't as frequent. But when the 49ers host the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday night at Candlestick Park, there will certainly be a pre-game embrace between the brothers Goodwin.

Nowadays, Harold Goodwin spends his Sundays up in the coaches' box, peering down onto the field as an offensive assistant coach for the Steelers. Jonathan Goodwin, on the other hand, is on the field as a 10-year veteran with one Super Bowl ring and trip to the Pro Bowl under his belt.

But it likely wouldn't have been possible without his older brother, who will gladly tell you all about it.
