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:

His faith, seemed to thrill fans as much as his performance on the field.
