The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have a roster full of players, and we want to talk about them all. One Foot Down’s player profile series will take a look at every single one of them, and hopefully we all learn a little bit more about these guys, and Notre Dame’s chances for the upcoming 2019 season.

#95 Myron Tagovailoa-Amosa, DL

This junior has the potential to make an impactful comeback as the Fighting Irish head into the new season. He set himself apart as a freshman in 2017 claiming 12 tackles in 13 games. However, injury obstructed his journey as he broke his foot to start his sophomore season.

He is another example of the Hawaiian talent that has become a main component of the Irish game. The Aloha State has become one of the most valuable resources for Notre Dame recruiting. For example, MTA joins freshman Marist Liufau and 2020 commit Jordan Botelho to continue the trend. Special teams coordinator Brian Polian has to have some serious jet lag from all those flights from Indiana to Hawaii and back. To give a little perspective, he made 11 trips across the Pacific and back to snag Manti Te’o during his high school career.

It’s a T Swift track for MTA. He’s ready to move on, shake it off, and move into the new season as a stronger and healthier player.

Hey, Dog, HEY!

MTA is a pit bull. Coaching staff and fans may have certain expectations of him after his season-ending injury, but he’s out to defy assumptions, and ready to get aggressive going after his goal.

2019 Outlook

MTA will definitely need to do all he can to prevent injury during this fresh start. However, even as he took the extra precautions, he showed promise during spring practice. From this point on, it’s all about making up for lost experience and time for MTA. He knows just how much he has at stake, and he’s likely to shake things up as a starter as he develops within the space Jerry Tiller filled previously.
