Tua Announces Scholarship for Hawaii High School
Tua Tagovailoa announced Tuesday that he would be establishing the “Tagovailoa Family Scholarship Endowment” for his high school alma mater in Hawaii.
As reported by the South Florida Sun Sentinel, the scholarship will be worth $300 thousand, and it will benefit Saint Louis School in Honolulu.
In the Sun Sentinel, Tagovailoa explained the purpose of the scholarship, “My hope is that these scholarships will give deserving Hawaii students the same opportunities Saint Louis School gave me. It is a blessing to honor my family and high school through this gift.”
In the past decade or so, Saint Louis School has cemented themselves as one of the premier football high schools in Hawaii. Along with Tagovailoa, the school has produced Marcus Mariota, former University of Hawaii quarterback Tommy Chang, and many other professional athletes.
Saint Louis School has won five Hawaii state titles. Tagovailoa was the quarterback for the Crusaders in its 2016 state title victory. The former Alabama quarterback finished his high school career with 5,515 passing yards and 57 passing touchdowns. He also accounted for 11 rushing touchdowns.
Looking forward, Tagovailoa is set for a breakout year with the Miami Dolphins. While he is not the starting quarterback now, many experts are claiming he will be the leader of the offense by the midpoint of the season.
