Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa Says Christian Faith, God’s Word Keep Him ‘Encouraged’

When the pro athlete was still an infant, his grandfather proclaimed he would become “world renowned, giving recognition to God’s honor.” In a 2019 interview with CBN, Tagovailoa said the fulfillment of that is “only something that God could have done.”

The QB told CBN his faith “keeps me motivated when I can’t even stay motivated myself.” He called Jesus “the greatest gift that God could’ve ever given us” but pointed out that hearing about Jesus isn’t enough.

“It’s a matter of getting to know who Jesus Christ is, to really understand and really feel the identity of who you are because of things that he’s done,” said Tagovailoa. “And I’d say you can only find your identity through him, if you know him.”
