Burnt Hills Olympian reportedly teaching Miami Dolphins quarterback how to fall
A well-known area Olympian is reportedly playing a role in teaching Miami Dolphins quarterback Tua Tagovailoa how to fall.
Jason Morris of Burnt Hills, a 1992 silver medalist in judo, reached out to NBC NFL reporter Mike Florio to suggest that Tagovailoa take judo to learn how to fall without hurting his head.
Tagovailoa has suffered at least two concussions from hitting his head on the turf.
Florio reports that Tagovailoa is taking Morris’s advice and taking lessons in judo.
NewsChannel 13 reached out to Morris to find out if he’s working directly with the quarterback.
