Newly drafted by the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, rookie quarterback and former University of Alabama standout Tua Tagovailoa revealed he will wear the No. 1 — the first quarterback in Miami history to do so, according to ESPN.com.
In the photo shared on social media, Tagovailoa also had Christian crosses drawn on each side of his face. The tweet reads, “For the Audience of 1″ and includes the praying hands emoji. Audience of One is used by many Christian players as a testimony of faith — signifying to the world that the athlete is pursuing God above all else, according to Athletes in Action.
Tagovailoa was the No. 5 pick during the NFL’s 2020 draft held in April.
