While there’s no question that Tua Tagovailoa wants to be the next great quarterback, the lefty gunslinger also wants to find himself a girlfriend. However, the reason behind why he wants a significant other is quite unusual.
Tagovailoa has gone through a strenuous workout program to prepare for this upcoming season. His father, Galu Tagovailoa, has also put a strict diet into effect for his sons.
Although Tagovailoa follows his father’s plan, the dual-threat quarterback wouldn’t mind breaking the rules from time to time.
In order to sneak junk food past his parents, Tagovailoa believes he needs a girlfriend that can go out and get the food. After all, the family confiscates the car keys during summer workouts to avoid anyone going to a fast-food chain.
From Sports Illustrated:
“You need a girlfriend,” Tua says, “to make her go get stuff and bring it back.”
This is simply a playful joke from Tagovailoa, who is poised for another strong season at Alabama.
His parents have clearly prioritized strict dieting and training over the course of his career.
All that hard work could pay dividends for Tagovailoa, as many scouts see him as one of the top prospects for the 2020 NFL Draft.
