Things are going well this fall for the Tagovailoa family of quarterbacks.
Tua Tagovailoa of the Miami Dolphins is looking like a MVP candidate through two weeks of the NFL season.
Younger brother Taulia Tagovailoa has led the Maryland Terrapins to a 3-0 record by throwing for 889 yards and five touchdowns.
And Saturday night in Hawaii, cousin Tuli Tagovailoa-Amosa
led a massive upset at the high school level as Kahuku
knocked off defending national champion St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Calif.) 30-23.
Tagovailoa-Amosa threw for a touchdown and ran for an 18-yard score in the final 30 seconds to give Kahuku the victory.
In addition to his connection to Tua and Taulia, Tuli's brother Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa played defensive end at Notre Dame and spent the 2022 season on the practice squad for the Las Vegas Raiders.
"Just seeing their work ethic and how they do things, it's a blessing and it just motivates me to do the same," Tagovailoa-Amosa said of his fooball-playing family members to KHON2
back in 2021. "I took a lot of things (from being around them), but just being confident, having faith that when you go out there, you gotta go 100 percent and be the best player out there."
Tagovailoa-Amosa began his high school career at Thompson (Alabaster, Ala.)
before moving back to Oahu and playing for Kapolei
as a sophomore and junior. He made the move to Kahuku and now has the Red Raiders ranked No. 9 nationally by MaxPreps after the upset of Bosco.
