Temporary rivals but forever fam- ily, Myron and Tua always encour- age and sometimes antagonize each other by cell phone every week. Tagovailoa-Amosa — a former grade school quarterback who out- grew his position — still beams, and brags during these calls that Tua's longest rush this season is 25 yards while Tagovailoa-Amosa's longest "rush" is 48 yards, a moment that even Kelly celebrates as one of the most entertaining and memorable of the season. "We teach you to pick [the foot- ball] up, and after that, we're happy," Kelly said, "We're trying to get you to strip it and run like the bejeezus, which he did!" ✦ Through seven games, Tagovailoa-Amosa had accounted for 14 total stops (seven solo) and two tackles for loss, to go along with an extremely memorable 48-yard return of a fumble in the Virginia game.
