Marquise Goodwin is headed from the sand pit to the football field.
Goodwin will trade in his track spikes for his cleats. The wide receiver for the Texas Longhorns plans to head back from the Olympics to begin preparing for the upcoming season.
He said practice starts Sunday, and wasn't sure if he'd get any time off.
"I don't know. I didn't get a medal," he said.
Goodwin was struggling to come to terms Saturday night with his defeat.
"Man, started off fouled my first jump which was my farthest jump. Couldn't get on the board," he said. "Disappointing day, I let everyone down. I gave it all I had. I just didn't have it."
