Dwayne Haskins, Steelers QB and Former OSU Standout, Dies at Age 24

Dwayne Haskins, a former Ohio State star quarterback who was a first-round draft pick in Washington and most recently played in Pittsburgh died this weekend when he was hit by a car, his agent Cedric Saunders told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Haskins was 24 years old.

Haskins was training in South Florida with other Steelers quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers.

At Ohio State, Haskins became one of the Buckeyes’ most prolific passers during his lone season as the starting quarterback in 2018, in which he completed 373 of 533 passing attempts for 4,831 yards and 50 touchdowns, breaking Ohio State’s single-season records for passing yards and passing touchdowns in the process. He finished third in the 2018 Heisman Trophy race and won the Chicago Tribune Silver Football, Big Ten Offensive Player of the Year and Big Ten Quarterback of the Year awards as he led Ohio State to a Big Ten championship.

Haskins went on to be selected by the Washington Commanders with the No. 15 overall pick in the 2019 NFL draft and was set to enter his fourth season in the NFL – his second with the Steelers – in 2022.
