    Childhood and youth

    Dwayne Haskins was born on May 3, 1997, in Highland Park, New Jersey, to parents Tamara and Dwayne Haskins Sr. His father played college football at Norfolk State University and was a member of the New York Guardians in the short-lived XFL football league. Dwayne grew up with two younger siblings, a brother named David and a sister named Tamia.

    Haskins attended The Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland, where he played high school football as a quarterback. During his junior year, he threw for 5,332 yards and 54 touchdowns, setting a Maryland state record for touchdown passes in a season. He continued his impressive play in his senior year, throwing for 3,182 yards and 41 touchdowns.

    After graduating from high school, Haskins committed to play college football at Ohio State University. He redshirted his freshman year and then saw limited playing time in his second year as the backup to starting quarterback J.T. Barrett. In his redshirt sophomore year, Haskins took over as the starting quarterback and had a breakout season, throwing for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns, both of which were school records. He was a Heisman Trophy finalist and led Ohio State to a Big Ten Championship and a Rose Bowl victory.

    Overall, Dwayne Haskins had a successful childhood and youth, excelling both academically and athletically. His passion for football was evident from a young age and he worked hard to become one of the top college quarterbacks in the country.

    Football career

    Dwayne Haskins' professional football career began in 2019 when he was selected by the Washington Football Team in the first round of the NFL Draft. He started seven games during his rookie season, throwing for 1,365 yards, seven touchdowns, and seven interceptions. While he showed some promise, his performance was inconsistent, and he struggled with turnovers and accuracy.

    In the 2020 season, Haskins entered as the starting quarterback for Washington but was once again inconsistent. He threw for 939 yards, five touchdowns, and seven interceptions in his first four games before being benched in favor of backup quarterback Kyle Allen. In Week 16, Haskins was given another opportunity to start but struggled again and was ultimately benched in favor of Taylor Heinicke.

    Off the field, Haskins had some notable incidents that brought negative attention to him. In December 2020, he violated COVID-19 protocols by attending a party without a mask and was fined and stripped of his captaincy by the Washington Football Team. There were also reports of friction between Haskins and his teammates and coaches, which may have contributed to his release from the team at the end of the season.

    In January 2021, Haskins signed a one-year deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, he struggled during the preseason and was ultimately released by the team in August 2021.

    Overall, Dwayne Haskins' professional football career was characterized by both successes and setbacks. While he showed potential at times, he also struggled with consistency, turnovers, and off-the-field issues.

    On April 9, 2022, Haskins suffered fatal injuries when a dump truck hit him while he was crossing Interstate 595 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on foot. The incident directly led to his demise. Haskins had traveled to Florida to train with some of his fellow Pittsburgh Steelers teammates.
