"Beyond football, Gooden noted, Mauldin was very talented at both drawing and dance, but football was his real chance to make it. Gooden signed him up for a recreational league when he was in ninth grade, where they had Mauldin playing wide receiver — which is hard to believe now, looking at his 259-pound frame."
