Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, the Miami Dolphins’ top pick in the 2020 NFL draft, took to social media after he was chosen to offer an enthusiastic dedication to South Florida.
Being selected by the Dolphins comes with the year-round warm weather, something that Tagovailoa is used to, given his lifetime connection to the state of Hawaii. Those family roots were clearly evident from the fashion choices of both Tagovailoa’s family members.
The video includes a snippet of a conversation between Tagovailoa and Dolphins general manager Chris Grier after the selection was made.
From Grier’s comments, it’s clear that Tagovailoa’s playing skills along with his grounded approach connected with the Dolphins organization.
The post itself shows the marketing potential that Tagovailoa possesses, with audio manufacturer Bose having established a paid partnership with the University of Alabama product.
The company and the Dolphins are both hoping that Tagovailoa is able to get past his frustrating string of injuries over the past few seasons. If that turns out to be the case, an avalanche of additional endorsements will soon follow.
