Dwayne Haskins came out of Ohio State University with a ton of promise. Haskins was drafted in the first round by Washington and eventually became a Pittsburgh Steeler. Sadly, Dwayne did not live long enough to reach his full potential.

Adam Schefter has reported that Dwayne Haskins passed away this morning at the age of 24. Haskins was struck by a car early this morning in south Florida, where he was training with several other Steelers offensive players. The quarterback died on the scene.

Dwayne Haskins was training in South Florida with other Steelers QBs, RBs and WRs. He was killed this morning in South Florida when he got hit by a vehicle. Tragic….

An up-and-down rookie season ensured that Dwayne Haskins’ stay with Washington was a short one. Pittsburgh signed him in 2021. Dwayne never got on the field in the regular season, but he was expected to compete for playing time this year.

Dwayne Haskins was the 15th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He was the MVP of the 2018 Big Ten Championship game as well as the 2019 Rose Bowl MVP. Haskins was named first-team All-Big Ten in 2018.

Haskins led the Ohio State Buckeyes to a 13-1 season in 2018. Dwayne threw for nearly 5,000 yards that year. A ridiculous touchdown to interception ratio of 50 to 8 punched his ticket to the National Football League.

There were no further details about the accident that led to Haskins’ death. His loss will be felt by Buckeye nation, NFL fans, and all of those who he touched in life. Everyone at Thirsty sends our condolences to the friends, family, and loved ones of Dwayne Haskins.
