We’re getting into the high numbers here for our player profiles, which means we’re almost done running through the roster for you all. It’s fun for us at OFD to help you all get to know the players on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. Next up is a sophomore d-lineman.

#95 Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa

Myron comes to us from Ewa Beach, Hawaii, and is a sophomore. He went to Kapolei High School in Honolulu, HI on the island of Oahu. After a little bit of playing time last season, he is going to want to add to the D-Line, specifically at defensive tackle. He is behind some big name players, but he can add as a solid backup and a force on the line.

3 Things to Know About Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa

  1. Myron had 7 solo tackles and 13 total last season in 7 of the 13 games for the Irish.
  2. D1 football is a family affair for Myron’s family. Myron’s older brother, Adam Amosa-Tagovailoa, is an Offensive Tackle for the Navy Midshipmen. You might have also heard of Tua Tagovailoa, Myron’s cousin. Tua won the national championship for the Alabama Crimson Tide this past season, throwing the winning TD pass in OT.

Huli-Huli sauce.

Yes, Myron is Huli-Huli sauce. One of the best ways to spice up some chicken, Polynesian style. With it’s sweetness, tanginess, and smokiness, it brightens up some chicken for the island. Myron brightens up the defense.

2018 Forecast

Because Myron is behind Kurt Hinish and Jonathan Bonner, he could see himself still in that backup role. He has shown that he can get into games to get tackles, so his ability to get some playing time should continue to increase this season. Look out for him on the D-Line this season but then also going forward into 2019 as well.
