Over the weekend, Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa returned to Tuscaloosa to receive his diploma. The star quarterback was one of 102 athletes graduating from the University of Alabama this past weekend.
Here’s a video of Tua Tagovailoa’s commencement courtesy of his brother, Taulia Tagovailoa.

Tua officially graduated last summer with a Bachelor’s degree in communication studios. However, like most of the graduating class of 2020, Tagovailoa never had the chance to walk on stage and accept his degree. That was until yesterday evening when all of his hard work and dedication paid off.
Unlike most of his peers, Tagovailoa’s future is already in motion. He’s the franchise quarterback of the Miami Dolphins, and after a rookie season where he went 6-3 as the starter, excitement is at an all-time high for Brian Flores’ team.
The future is bright for Tua Tagovailoa. And with a full offseason to get bigger, stronger, and faster, Tua Tagovailoa is going to look less like the inexperienced quarterback we saw in 2020 and more like the player we fell in love with at Tuscaloosa.
Did you walk at your High School/college graduation? What are your realistic expectations for Tua Tagovailoa in 2021?
