Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa might not live in Tuscaloosa anymore, but he will always love the Alabama Crimson Tide. It’s where he became a superstar, dominating college football and the SEC with 96 career touchdowns. Now, he plans to give back to the community that helped make him famous.

Before Tagovailoa hears his named called at the 2020 NFL Draft in Las Vegas, he will host The Tua Tagovailoa Football ProCamp at Tuscaloosa County High School in Northport, Alabama.

Boys and girls of all skill levels from grades 1-8 are welcome to attend the camp on Saturday, April 18, 2020.

Although his playing days at Bryant-Denny Stadium ended early due to a hip injury at Mississippi State, the future first-round pick helped take Alabama football and head coach Nick Saban’s program to new heights, including a national championship over Georgia in Atlanta back in 2018. The Alabama QB also led the Tide to big wins over LSU, Oklahoma, Clemson, and the Auburn Tigers during his NCAA career.

The fact the former Heisman Trophy finalist wants to help the area’s youth is pretty special. The camp sounds awesome as well.

“Participants will learn fundamental football skills and have the opportunity to meet and interact with the star quarterback. Each camper will receive a limited edition t-shirt, a souvenir autograph, and a team photo with Tua.”

The cost for the high-energy, three-hour camp is $149. Registration can be made online.
