Tua Tagovailoa: ‘The greatest gift that God could have given us was His Son’

Ahead of the 2020 NFL Draft, former University of Alabama star quarterback Tua Tagovailoa earlier this week appeared on Christian Broadcasting Network’s “The 700 Club.”

On the show, Tagovailoa spoke about his deep faith, as well as the importance of family in his life. Throughout, he displayed what what makes him such a special NFL prospect.

He even compared having a strong moral foundation as a person to having the proper base to throw from while playing quarterback.

“Your foundation is what you’re always going to revert back to,” he remarked. “For me, my foundation is my faith and my family. You know my faith is what keeps me motivated when I can’t even stay motivated myself. I’m just trying to play football, just trying to be able to take care of my family and be able to use my platform for the right reasons.”

“The greatest gift that God could have given us was His Son. It’s not just a matter of hearing what Jesus Christ is, it’s a matter of getting to know who Jesus Christ is. To really understand and really feel the identity of who you are because of things that He’s done. And I’d say you can only find your identity through Him, if you know Him,” Tagovailoa said.

The first round of the NFL Draft will be televised Thursday beginning at 7:00 p.m. CT. Rounds two and three will be held Friday, with the fourth to seventh rounds being held Saturday. The entire draft is being conducted remotely due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Tagovailoa is projected to be drafted in the first round, with many forecasting the Miami Dolphins as a likely landing destination. Sports Illustrated even projected the Dolphins having to move up to third overall from fifth overall to land him.
