The Tagovailoas’ have been and will always be about family.

He is no longer at the University of Alabama, but Taulia Tagovailoa is grateful for the lessons he learned from his older brother. He watched how Tua Tagovailoa conducted the huddle, orchestrated the offense and helped others become successful.

Taulia also took notes on how Tua was off the field, as he became the biggest ambassador of Alabama football.

Now in the National Football League, Tua took the field for his second start against the Arizona Cardinals. He totaled 248 passing yards, 36 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Tagovailoa guided the Miami Dolphins to a 34-31 win on the road, defeating Kyler Murray for a second time.

As a former Heisman finalist, the once five-star recruit is gaining more knowledge of the offense and Brian Flores (Dolphins head coach) believes he made the right move in the NFL Draft.

After seeing how well his brother played, Taulia gave Tua his stamp of approval on Twitter.

Both young men are excelling on the field. In transferring to Maryland, Taulia is having fun in the Big Ten.

The Terrapins at 2-1 on the season and Tagovailoa led it to a 35-19 win over Penn State.

He had three touchdowns in that matchup and accounts for six scoring passes this year.

Tua has the Dolphins at 5-3 as it has won four straight games.
