Dwayne Haskins Jr. (May 3, 1997 – April 9, 2022) was an American football quarterback who spent three seasons in the National Football League. He was a sophomore at Ohio State University when he won the Sammy Baugh Trophy and was named Rose Bowl MVP in 2019. Haskins was drafted in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft by the Washington Redskins, however he was released in less than two seasons due to uneven play and issues about his work ethic. In 2021, he signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, where he remained until his death in the off-season the following year.
Haskins was killed by a dump truck on a South Florida highway around 7 a.m. EDT (UTC-4) on April 9, 2022. He was in Florida to work out with a few of his Pittsburgh Steelers colleagues.   Haskins was strolling on Interstate 595 near Davie when he was struck by a dump truck while attempting to cross the westbound lanes of the interstate and killed at the scene, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
