Marc Goodson wasn't about to take it easy on anyone, not even his own quarterback. Gliding to his right, eyes fixed on the target like a tiger prowling for lunch, the Cal State Northridge linebacker waited for the right time to pounce on the ballcarrier. When he did, hitting unamused quarterback Aaron Flowers much harder than prescribed during a practice drill, the two All-Americans tangled briefly in a shoving and shouting match that might have worried others but not Coach Jim Fenwick.

Marc Goodson couldn't get his mind off football. Especially when he was stuffing his muscular 6-foot-2, 235-pound frame under a sink. Or when he was finishing a daylong shift remodeling kitchens and bathrooms. Or when he was cashing his paycheck, which never seemed to be quite as much as Goodson hoped. Truth be told, his thoughts were rarely on anything but football during a season in which he gave it up to join the work force.

Any chance for a championship vanished weeks ago. Hopes for an invitation to the Division I-AA playoffs disappeared soon after. But don't tell Coach Jim Fenwick Cal State Northridge's season-ending Big Sky Conference football game against Northern Arizona tonight at 6:05 at North Campus Stadium is meaningless. Not unless you're begging for an earful. "We want to win," Fenwick said. "We want the seniors to go out well."

Senior middle linebacker Marc Goodson is showing Northridge coaches, most of whom are in their first season with the team, why he was an All-American and All-Big Sky Conference selection last season. "He just plays so well," said John Rosenberg, Northridge's new defensive coordinator. "He has a great combination of instinct, timing and physical ability, and he has great leadership." Goodson, 6 feet 2 and 235 pounds, has been picked as a preseason second-team All-American by The Sports Network.
