Although Andrew Goodman (6'2/205) of Mallard Creek High School in Charlotte, N.C. played only one season for the Mavericks, he made the most of it. Currently, Goodman does not have any scholarship offers, but several schools are showing a significant amount of interest in him.

"Right now, I am hearing from Towson, Miami of Ohio, UNC-Charlotte, Richmond, UNC-Pembroke, and Old Dominion," said Goodman. "I am hearing from Pembroke the most."

Goodman is still waiting on his first offer, but recently sent out his senior film to several schools.

"I sent my tape to the six schools that I am hearing from," he said "I also sent it to some Conference-USA schools, Mid-American schools, Sun-Belt schools, and Southern Conference schools," Goodman said.

Goodman is knows what he is looking for in a school.

"I want to go to a school with a good quarterback situation, a school that is not too big, and a place that I can get a good education," said Goodman.

North Carolina State has invited the Mavericks quarterback to walk-on.

"I have considered that a little bit," he said. "There have been some good players that were walk-ons."

What school really intrigues Goodman?

"I really hope that Miami of Ohio likes my tape," he said. "I felt like that was a good situation for me, they only have two quarterbacks on the roster."

While no date is set, Goodman has an idea of when he will make a final decision.

"I am hoping once I send my senior tape out to a lot of schools that I will be able to narrow my choices down during February," said Goodman. "I would like to make my decision sometime early in March."

The Mavericks' quarterback had a tremendous year. Goodman threw for over 2,800 yards, 36 touchdowns, and completed 60 percent of his passes. He also ran for 300 yards and three touchdowns. He bench presses 225 pounds, squats 375, and runs the 40-yard dash in 4.7 seconds.
