Anthony "Chief " Goodwin is a 2009 graduate of Great Oak High School and just recently participated in the University of Montana Pro Day with the hopes of impressing pro scouts for an opportunity to play in the NFL. Goodwin is ranked #47 out of 283 CB’s by The Sports Xchange, a pro scouting website. He has run 4.45 seconds in the 40 yd dash.

Goodwin helped lead the University of Montana Grizzlies to a 10-2 record this year. He is considered the best cover corner – the lockdown guy -- on the team. Goodwin earned the Big Sky Defensive Player of the Week and the Sports Network co-national "Player of the Week" on defense for his two-interception, seven-pass deflection performance against Portland State this past year. The seven pass deflections in a single game was the most by a player in the FCS Division this year. Goodwin was named to the 2013 All Big Sky Conference Second team with 41 tackles, two interceptions, and 14 pass deflections.

Goodwin was named First Team All-Southern Conference in 2011 at Mt San Antonio Junior College (ranked #3 in the nation). He recorded 40 tackles, 13 pass break-ups, two picks (one for a TD).

His freshman JC team won a National Championship. He also clocked a 10.6 second 100 meter in track that season.

Goodwin lettered in football and track while at Great Oak High School. An injury cut his senior year short, but not before he recorded seven touchdowns on nine carries in the first four games as a running back. He also played defense as a cornerback.

"Chief Goodwin is a hidden gem," said Coach Dechon Burns, ex-Washington Redskins coach and current Linfield Christian head coach who has worked with Goodwin, "He has great speed and very good hips. He is physical at the point and is a student of the game. I truly feel that should he get the opportunity to play at the next level he will not disappoint. He is also a very coachable player that will go above and beyond in working to master his craft."

Goodwin is the son of Tony and Julia Goodwin of Temecula and has one sister, Alyx, who is a graduate of San Jose State.
