NCAA Football: Maryland at Michigan State Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Maryland football quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa is close to setting a few records for the program on the field, but off the field, the junior is standing out as well.

Tagovailoa was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District Football Team, which recognizes the country’s top student-athletes when it comes to performance on the field combined with academic success.

In 2021, Tagovailoa is third all-time in program history for single-season completions with 268, passing yards with 3,105 and passing touchdowns with 20. He also has had six different games where he has thrown for over 300 yards, which is the most in a single season in program history.

On top of his on-field efforts this season, Tagovailoa’s current 3.68 GPA allowed him to make the academic team. Maryland has just two games remaining in 2021 and Tagovailoa will look to lead the Terps to their first bowl game since 2016.
