Miami Dolphins star says he’s always praying before, after, during games
Miami Dolphins starting QB says he’s always praying even during games and on the sidelines. Tua Tagovailoa, 25, says it’s been tough not being able to attend church on Sundays. “I pray before I go out to series and whatnot. I’m always praying. I’m on the sidelines, looks like I am talking to myself, speaking in tongues.”
Tagovailoa says faith is what he’s grown up his whole life and it’s a part of who he is. The former Alabama star is now trusting God with his NFL career and playing for God’s glory, win or lose it’s about Christ. Tagovailoa is thankful for the platform the NFL gives him to share his faith and the hope he has with more people.
“I grew up in a nondenominational Christian church my whole life. It does a lot.”
Memorizing Scripture has been a part of his life for as long as he can remember. It’s how many high-performing athletes tap into God’s supernatural power – leaning into their faith to compete at their absolute best.
“Having to remember scripture always keeps me encouraged, moving forward, especially in times like this.”
More and more athletes are coming out professing their faith as a key part of their lives. Tennis star Coco Gauff recently prayed on the court after her US Open win. MLB rookie. LA Dodgers recently hosted Faith and Family Day at Dodger Stadium. Evan Carter of the Texas Rangers MLB team made headlines for his Jesus Won shirt.
