Speaking to the press, Tagovailoa carried himself very well, with humility, considering he is a freshman and demonstrating exemplary athleticism at the highest caliber. The Press asked him multiple questions, asking how he has been since being away from his home state of Hawaii? What has brought additional attention to Tagovailoa, was his response when the press asked him where his poise comes from. “I would say my poise comes from my faith”. He continues, ‘Just being able to come onto the sideline every time, after I go into a drive, I just pray for peace. I just pray, asking God, let your will be done in me and the rest will follow’. He additionally shares how much of a blessing it is for him to represent his home state of Hawaii.
It is so beautiful to see Tua using this moment in the spotlight to turn the attention to the Lord and acknowledging Jesus Christ.
