Every elite athlete dreams of hearing their name called on draft day, and while this year’s NFL draft is surrounded by unique circumstances, it’s sure to be full of emotional and unforgettable moments.
Ahead of the draft, Travis Hanour captured the weight of the moment for Alabama star Tua Tagovailoa. The spot features the Tagovailoa family as they express their pride in the name that the quarterback has made for himself and for their family.
“In the Samoan culture, your family name is gold,” his father shares “that name is either going to make you or break you, so he wants to represent that name.”
Tagovailoa is projected to go in the first round of the NFL Draft, which airs April 23 through April 25. Check out the spot above, and see more from Travis here.
