Tua is ready for the NFL Draft. He doesn't know what's going to happen when the first round kicks off tonight, but he's ready for it. For Tua, he knows tonight is going to change his family forever.
How is Tua preparing for the biggest night of his life? He's giving back and uplifting his community. Tua recently partnered with Lowe's to surprise a number of workers and thank them for all they're doing during the Covid-19 pandemic. That's just how Tua is. There's no doubt that Tua's leadership skills and character are going to translate to the NFL. He's built for this.
With the NFL Draft upon us, we had the opportunity to chat with Tua on the phone about his experiences leading up to the draft, his thoughts on the 2020 WR class, and whether or not Nick Saban actually uses his iPhone.
(This interview has been edited and condensed for clarity.)
I just watched the Lowe's video. Amazing stuff. What was that experience like being able to surprise their workers like that?
Oh man, it was awesome knowing that this was, especially for me and my family by calling some of those people at Lowe's and it was a really good feeling for me, man. I think I came away doing better than those guys did. Doing something like that. But it was really easy to do that. Especially knowing, how hard workers they are and how they help serve the community when it's needed most, you know? And at the same time, Alabama has been home away from home and has had such a big influence on me. So I guess my token of appreciation to them was, I invited them to the game wherever I ended up. Just a small kind of token of appreciation for the things that they do. So it was awesome in that regard.
