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.
Boys and girls of all skill levels from grades 1-8 are welcome to attend the camp on Saturday, April 18, 2020.
Tua Tagovailoa Youth Football Camp
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."
Tagovailoa, a Hawaii native, will also be joined by several prep and college coaches from around the area.
The cost for the high-energy, three-hour camp is $149. Registration can be made online.
Media partners for the event include CBS 42, 100.9 FM and Roll Bama Roll, while the event partners include Citi, the Hatton Foundation, and Welch's Fruit Snacks.
Former University of Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa is still making an impact even after he left.
