For his play, Tagge was a first-team All-Nebraska and first-team All-Metro selection by the Omaha World-Herald. In 2018, Tagge helped Westside to a 9-2 record and a state quarterfinal appearance. He led the way for the stingy Warrior defense and earned second-team Super State honors from the Lincoln Journal Star as a linebacker and All-Metro honors and honorable-mention all-state accolades from the Omaha World-Herald.
