The final game of the college football season Monday night was tense from the start and ended with a win for Alabama in overtime. While it was an incredible game to watch, nobody is talking about the score, touchdowns, win, or defeat today after one entitled player made the main event all about his hate for President Donald Trump. However, now, after almost 24 hours later, we’re now learning that it’s not what Alabama’s Running Back said that’s most shocking, it’s what the team’s Quarterback did on live television, immediately after the win.
This speaks even louder than the “F You” to Trump that Bo Scarbrough shouted and is sure to cause some major anger among spectators who missed it.
Alabama’s starting quarterback was out and their freshman player in line for the position was thrust into the spot for the biggest game of the season. Despite not having started at all since being accepted onto the team, Tua Tagovailoa was forced into the most intimidating position possible for a player his age, so early in his career. He ran onto the field determined to win and accomplished that against all odds, leading his team to an unbelievable victory. It was an incredible moment and when interviewed about it immediately after he only had one thing to say and used his moment of attention on live television – with everyone watching – to say it.
While the running back was making disparaging remarks about the president, the quarterback had the perfect defense to his teammates’ disgusting behavior with what he told the reporter. The left is celebrating the Bo Scarbrough for telling Trump to “f*ck off” and now they’re about to say the same to Tagovailoa for what he wasn’t afraid to say.
The Daily Caller reports:
Tua Tagovailoa is a name you should know.
Tagovailoa all but single-handedly won the national championship game for the Alabama Crimson Tide over the Georgia Bulldogs Monday night. The freshman from Hawaii was not the starter for the national championship game, or any game this season for that matter. He went in to command the offense for 166 yards and 27 yards rushing in the second half, finishing 14-for-24 in the most important game of the season. Tagovailoa also threw the game-winning touchdown in overtime – a dead arrow strike to wide receiver DeVonta Smith, clinching the title.
When asked what went through his mind after his coach told him he was going to start, Tagovailoa said he wanted to thank someone:
First and foremost, I just want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, with whom all things are possible. That’s what happened tonight.
Tagovailoa went on to thank his family and teammates before saying again:
In this moment it means the world but at the same time all glory goes to God. I can’t describe what He has done for me and my family. I thank God for that.
This quarterback proved himself as a hero in two huge ways in one night – he brought his team to a win in overtime after being underestimated all season and then publicly thanked God for getting him there, no matter who is offended by his religious sentiment. It’s a stark contrast from the beginning of the game with Scarbrough only thought he was a hero but came out as a loser against our president and country. Two players on the same team, one honorable and gracious, the other offensive and racist.
“Thrown into the game to start the second half, Tagovailoa threw two touchdown passes in regulation and put Alabama in position to win it at the end of regulation. When the field goal attempt failed — Alabama, y’all! — Tagovailoa uncorked a gorgeous, 41-yard pass to beat Georgia in overtime, giving the Tide the most improbable of its 12 national titles,” USA Today reported.
One of the most impressed people by his actions was Tagovailoa’s coach who gave credit where it’s due and sent a message that all Americans needed to hear. Coach Saban said he had total trust in his freshman quarterback because he knows what kind of a guy he is and that’s someone who gives everything his all, all of the time.
“I trust players, players that do things the right way, players who prepare the right way, practice the right way, they’re dependable,” Saban said in an interview following his team’s incredible victory. “When players do that, I have total faith, trust and confidence to put them out there. So I have that in Tua.”
Way to go, Tagovailoa, you won over the hearts of every conservative in America who had given up on football this year. He proved that you can be good at a sport and a good person and can use your position for good, rather than to divide and destroy. The country needs more examples like this young man in society.
