The Alabama Crimson Tide are looking to be continue their dominance in the world of college football over the next few years and 2017 quarterback commit Tua Tagovailoa will likely be a big piece of that going forward. He showed just how good he can be in the future at The Opening, where he won the Elite 11 MVP award.
During the seven-on-seven game on Sunday, Tagovailoa dominated for Team Vapor Speed as he threw four touchdown passes in the first half of their 38-20 win over Fly Rush in the championship game.
This helped him win the award, becoming just the second Alabama commit to win the award, joining 2015 signee Blake Barnett.
“[Winning MVP] means a lot. It’s a once-in-a-lifetime experience as well as journey. Being able to get the MVP, all glory goes to God with that,” Tagovailoa told Bleacher Report. “It was a team effort and it couldn’t have been done if the receivers didn’t catch passes and the defense didn’t get us the ball back.”
Tua Tagovailoa seems well on his way to being one of the best players in the country next year. It is likely that he will compete for the starting job and then move on to take the Crimson Tide to many years of success.
