Give the glory to God!!!

Alabama's Roll Tide won the national college football championship, led by a young man who says everything in life is centered around God, even football.

After Bama's backup quarterback, Tua Tagovailoa, came in after halftime and rallied the Crimson Tide to a 26-23 win over Georgia in the College Football National Championship game Monday night, he gave credit to "my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ."

"Excuse me," Tua Tagovailoa said at his post-game ESPN interview. "First and foremost, I'd just like to thank my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. With him, all things are possible. That's what happened tonight."

Tagovailoa grew up in Hawaii attending a church where his uncle, Tuli Amosa, was pastor, Savali Ole Filemu (Message of Peace) Church in Ewa Beach, Hawaii. After moving to Tuscaloosa, Tagovailoa began attending the Tuscaloosa branch of the Church of the Highlands, Alabama's largest church, led by Pastor Chris Hodges from the main campus in Irondale.

"All glory goes to God," Tagovailoa said. "I can't describe what He's done for me and my family. Who would have ever thought I would have been here, right now in this moment. So, you know, thank God for that, and I'd just like to thank my teammates and coach Saban for giving me the opportunity."

Tagovailoa later on Tweeted the following:

What this young star athlete said couldn't be more admirable- and TRUE! With God, all things are possible in your life as well.
