Former Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on Wednesday urged others to watch the "Sound of Freedom," a hit film that tells the story of Tim Ballard, a Homeland Security agent who quit his job after failing to get clearance to save children from sex traffickers in Colombia.

Tagovailoa, who is open about his Christian faith, said he watched "Sound of Freedom" with his Miami Dolphins teammates and recommended those with children watch the movie.

"Head coach Mike McDaniel had mentioned the value of joint practices and getting together as a team. What kind of role do you think you play in just getting the guys together and getting the off-field conversations and getting that bond together?" a reporter asked Tagovailoa, who led the Tide to victory in the 2018 National Championship over Georgia after replacing starter Jalen Hurts in the second half.

"Yeah, I think it's really, really good," Tagovailoa replied. "We had an off day yesterday coming here. Went to dinner with the guys on Monday. And then we also got to go watch a movie yesterday so it was cool. It was like a movie fest yesterday. Just movie hopping. Watched 'Oppenheimer,' that was pretty good. Freaking long. That's a long movie, oh my gosh. 'Sound of Freedom' is good. Yeah, 'Sound of Freedom' is definitely really good. You guys should watch that. Especially you guys with kids."
