Alabama’s Tua Tagovailoa improves in football, if not Fortnite

It is the year of the veteran quarterback in the Southeastern Conference.

His announcement comes two days after Oklahoma’s Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Kyler Murray declared himself eligible for the NFL draft.

Tua Tagovailoa produces everything but singular Heisman moment

Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has really had that one Heisman moment this season. He was hurt and not quite himself in the Southeastern Conference championship game. The quarterback was sidelined with a high ankle sprain for the climactic minutes of the top-ranked Crimson Tide’s comeback, 35-28 win over No. 5 Georgia. His teammates say Tagovailoa hasn’t needed a so-called Heisman moment to show he’s “the best player in the country.”

Who is Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and why wasn’t he playing all season?

Sometimes, it pays to wait and watch, biding your time until you can show the world just what you can do. For Tua Tagovailoa, his chance came on college football’s biggest stage, when Alabama coach Nick Saban decided at halftime to replace quarterback Jalen Hurts with his freshman from Hawaii, a guy who had been offered a scholarship only after Jake Fromm flipped his commitment to Georgia.
