Armoni Goodwin possesses breakaway speed that will punish defenses. Placed second in the Alabama 6A State track and field championship as a freshman running 10.96 in the 100 meters and second in the long jump. He’s strong and capable of breaking tackles with good vision. He can take over a game when need be. At the 0:42 mark in the video below, tied at 33 with less than three minutes to go. Goodwin sees daylight, splits the defenders and no one can stop him for the go-ahead score. Returned kicks well. His acceleration and the speed at which he changes direction is advantageous and opens misdirection plays.
