The NFL took to social media to remember Dwayne Haskins after he was reportedly struck and killed by a car in South Florida on Saturday morning.
Former Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was the latest after issuing a statement on the death of Dwayne Haskins, saying his smile and zeal for life will be missed:
“I only had the privilege to know D-Hask for a short time, but in that time I got to meet a young man that didn’t seem to ever have a bad day,” Roethlisberger wrote. “He came to work everyday with a smile on his face and energy and love in his heart. I really enjoyed his passion and love for the game and wanting to learn and be the best. His smile and zeal for life will be missed!”
Roethlisberger also sent a message to Haskins’ wife, Kalabrya Haskins:
“We don’t understand why God does what he does but we have trust and believe in his plan,” Roethlisberger wrote. “You are an amazing woman of faith and we trust you will get through this.”
Haskins was drafted with the No. 15 pick in the 2019 draft following a standout career at Ohio State. Haskins threw for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns as a sophomore at the school, setting several Big Ten records in the process.
In total 13 starts with Washington in 2019 and 2020, Haskins threw for 2,804 and 12 touchdowns. He had since been with the Steelers as a backup
