Goldberg is entering his fourth year as a starter for the Cowboys. For the second consecutive season, he will be the starter at left tackle. Goldberg enters his senior season bigger (330 pounds) and stronger than ever. He has started all 32 career games he has played in at UW. The only game he missed during his career was due to mononucleosis in the 2001 season opener against Furman.

He earned First Team All-Conference honors as a junior in voting by MWC head football coaches.

He joined Galand Thaxton (1986) and Marques Brigham (1997) as the only other juniors to be voted team captain. (Current Cowboy juniors Casey Bramlet and Ryan McGuffey have since joined the elite group.) Goldberg was shifted from right tackle to left tackle in 2001 spring drills. 2000: Goldberg started all 11 games at right tackle for the Cowboys, earning Second Team All-MWC honors.
