All-Pro WR De'Airus Goodwine returns for the 2021
The Erie Express are happy to announce the return of All-Pro WR De'Airus Goodwine (East, HS) for the 2021 season. Pug begins his seventh season with the Express and will compete for a spot at WR and special teams.
In 2019 De'Airus played a major role in our second straight appearance in the GDFL Xtreme Conference Finals. "Pug" is the last remaining player on our roster who was also a part of our first season (2011 GIFA Champion Erie Outlaws) as a WR/DB/KR.
During the 2014 season, playing with the Oil Region Rampage, Goodwine hauled in 66 receptions for 1500 yards and 16 TDs. In addition to his offense production he was also used as a defensive back recording 4 INT's 2 of which he returned for TD's. For his efforts he was named SPF All-Pro.
"De'Airus has been working very hard during camp and looks to be in great shape and hungry for a championship. He is a very gifted athlete with amazing speed. When he catches the ball, regardless of where on the field he is, there is a very good chance he is going the distance. We are very happy to have him back on board with us and are looking forward to an amazing season from him in 2021"-Director of Operations Paul Pennington.
