The parents of Dwayne Haskins spoke out on the passing of their son, who was killed over the weekend after he was struck by a dump truck while walking on a Florida interstate.
Tamara and Dwayne Haskins, Sr. described the pain of their loss as “unimaginable.”
“We have had such an overwhelming outpouring of love for our son since the news broke of our loss,” Haskins’ parents said. “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. This pain is unimaginable and we appreciate everyone who shares in our heartbreak.”
Haskins’ parents revealed that multiple services will be held in New Jersey and Maryland this month to honor their son’s life.
Funeral services for Haskins will take place on April 23rd. A second service is being planned for the next day at Bullis School in Potomac, Maryland, where Haskins attended high school.
“This is an open traffic homicide investigation,” Florida Highway Patrol spokeswoman Lt. Indiana Miranda told Fox News. “No further information will be released until the investigation has been closed.”
After his stint with Washington, the Steelers offered Haskins a second chance when they signed him to a one-year deal in 2021. He served as a third-string quarterback behind Mason Rudolph.
Haskins, who signed a one-year restricted free agent tender this offseason, was expected to compete for the starting job in Pittsburgh following veteran Ben Roethlisberger’s retirement.
