Malik started playing football his freshman year in High School, never knowing that he could be leading his football team in tackles and passing his close friend, Neno Brown, as they challenged each other on who can get the most tackles this season.
Goethe had won The Ruden Report’s player of the week for the week of October 22nd. Goethe had 10 tackles, six for losses and two sacks in a 41-0 win over Bridgeport Central. “I feel proud. I’ve been working very hard at playing defensive end, my new position, and it shows the hard work that I have been putting in this season.”
Goethe is also on the wrestling team, which he took a break from sophomore year and came back to football his Junior year. “Having ten other people next to you, doing their job, and when we all do it right, something amazing happens. I love the feeling and it makes me love the sport even more.”
Goethe plays defensive end as well as wide receiver . Goethe feels like playing those positions play a big role. “I feel like both positions have a specific role. To play receiver you’re meant for big time plays and big time moments and I think I can deliver. Defensive end, I feel like I currently excel in the position and play a big role in our current defense.”
Malik says he is going to miss the moments he had playing at McMahon and showing his fans and supporters how good he is at this sport. “Playing my last home game as a senator felt really heavy it was a weight that gonna stick with me and I know Imma miss playing under the lights.”
