When Tagovailoa completed a 41-yard, game-winning touchdown pass to DeVonta Smith in overtime during Alabama’s 2018 College Football Playoff National Championship Game versus Georgia, Uluave became enamored with him.

Uluave posted a video to Twitter five years ago of the moment.

He called Tagovailoa ‘a beast’ and referenced the former Alabama quarterback defeating him in high school. A full-circle moment has happened for Uluave as he signed an undrafted free-agent contract for the Miami Dolphins. Tagovailoa is now united with his biggest fan as his new teammate. It is going to be interesting to see Uluave and Tagovailoa working together in the league.
