Dwayne Haskins would have turned 25 today.

Nobody should die that young. What a terrible loss for his family and everybody who loved him.

The Haskins family are inviting people to participate in a moment of silence tonight at 8pm. They hope that others will “reflect on the memories that Dwayne brought to our lives with his affectionate smile.”

The Haskins Family Foundation will be establishing a scholarship fund in his name. Donations can be made at haskinsfamilyfoundation.com.

Haskins parents Dwayne Sr. and Tamara issued a statement last month:

“Anyone who knew Dwayne, knows he worked exceptionally hard to achieve such a high level of success at such a young age. He was touched by so many people on his journey to being a standout athlete and we are grateful to all of them. the pain is unimaginable and we appreciate everyone who shares in our heartbreak.”

RIP Dwayne Haskins

Tragedy Struck

Haskins was tragically killed last month. He was trying to cross Interstate 595’s westbound lanes near the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in Broward County. According to the Florida Highway Patrol, he was struck by a dump truck some time before 6:30am.

The former Ohio State University star had been in South Florida working out in the off-season, with some of his Pittsburgh Steelers’ team mates.

He was originally drafted by the Washington Football Team with the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The young quarterback finished third in Heisman trophy voting, awarded to college football’s most outstanding player. While at OSU, he led the Buckeyes to a win in the Rose Bowl in 2018 after posting an outstanding 13-1 regular season mark. He also set school, as well as Big Ten Conference records, as a redshirt sophomore. Those records included 4,831 yards passing in a single season, 4,939 total offensive yards, and 50 touchdown passes.

It’s sad that his infectious smile is with us no longer.

May he rest in peace.
