Dwayne Haskins’ contributions to the Ohio State football program won’t be soon forgotten. The 24-year-old was killed when he was struck by a dump truck on I-595 in South Florida on April 9.
Prior to its spring game Saturday, Ohio State paid homage to its former star quarterback by holding a moment of silence and the players and coaching staff wore “DH” decals or pins.
The Buckeyes also released a very emotional tribute video during halftime of Saturday’s spring game in Columbus.
“It will be nice to have Buckeye nation together for this event on Saturday, to celebrate our team and the hard work we put in the spring but also to get everybody together to honor Dwayne, and I think that’s appropriate,” Day said, via Saturday Tradition. “It’s gonna be a lot of excitement, but also some moments in the day that’ll be deep thoughts based on our memories with Dwayne playing in that stadium.”
During the Buckeyes’ 13-1 season in 2018, Haskins threw for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns — both Big Ten and school single-season records.
