He won the game for his team, but what he said afterwards won hearts
In Monday night’s National Championship college football game, true freshman quarterback Tua Tagovailoa won the game for the University of Alabama in dramatic fashion with a 42-yard pass in overtime. Alabama beat the University of Georgia, 26-23, despite a missed field goal in the last seconds of the 4th quarter and a 16-yard sack at the start of the winning drive. It wasn’t just the thrilling game that had Twitter on fire — it was what the young freshman had to say afterwards:

"Since you are here...
…we have a small favor to ask. Aleteia’s readership continues to grow rapidly, however advertising revenues across all media are falling fast. You may have noticed that many websites are putting up paywalls in order to sustain their journalism. For us, however, this is not an option as our apostolic mission is to encourage and inspire Christian life for as many Catholics as possible. We would also like to reduce the number of ads on the site, but it is simply not possible unless we generate income in other ways. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Aleteia’s journalism takes a lot of hard work and money to produce. We will continue to serve you because it is our mission, but please consider making a contribution to support our work and help us secure our future."
