Where Tua Tagovailoa finished in the 2019 Heisman Trophy voting
Tua Tagovailoa entered the 2019 season as a Heisman Trophy favorite, but it ultimately wasn’t meant to be for the Alabama quarterback. Starting with the ankle injury, and later the season-ending hip injury, Tagovailoa missed too much time to be a Heisman finalist.
Tagovailoa did not get another invite to the ceremony in New York City, but he did receive 1 first-place vote, 4 second-place votes and 13 third-place votes for a total of 24 points, No. 10 among candidates.
Tagovailoa was 180-of-252 passing for 2,840 yards and 33 touchdowns as a junior, breaking numerous UA records while playing in only 9 games in the 2019 season. He now faces a big decision of whether to leave for the NFL Draft and risk being drafted later than if healthy or return for another season and risk another injury. Tagovailoa has been open about weighing both options.
