Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa has won the Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award. The award, which began in 2014 and went to Oregon QB Marcus Mariota, recognizes the most outstanding Polynesian college football player that “epitomizes great ability and integrity.” Tagovailoa, who grew up in Ewa Beach, Hawaii, and is of Samoan descent, has led the top-ranked Crimson Tide to a 13-0 record and a spot in the CFP semifinal at the Capital One Orange Bowl. The sophomore has throw for 3,353 yards, 37 touchdowns and four interceptions this season.

Ahead of Saturday night's Heisman Trophy presentation, Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa was walking around without the boot and scooter he had been sporting earlier in the week after suffering a high ankle sprain in last weekend's SEC Championship. He was just cleared to come out of it. "It showed that we had tremendous progress with how we were moving within our treatment, and I was able to get the thumbs up to go ahead and get out of the boot."
