According to WPLG in Hawaii, four students will receive scholarships over the next four years.
“My hope is that these scholarships will give deserving Hawaii students the same opportunities Saint Louis School gave me,” Tagovailoa said. “It is a blessing to honor my family and high school through this gift.”
The Dolphins selected the former Alabama star in the first round of the 2020 draft.
With the COVID-19 pandemic making the league unable to stage the event with its traditional fanfare, most incoming rookies watched the event unfold at home with family members. Tagovailoa was stationed in Alabaster, Alabama, where his family moved to watch his college career.
As the fifth overall pick, Tagovailoa will receive $30.3 million over four years from the Dolphins and earned a $19.6 million signing bonus.
