@FlashGoodwinI've watched you work and stay focused for 4 years. Good luck in London.— Major Applewhite (@CoachApplewhite) June 25, 2012
We are happy for Marquise and applaud his hard work and wish him well in going for the Gold. We also hopes he thinks about the Sooners a little every day. We'd like to see more of this in the Fall.
Hook 'Em, Marquise!
