Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins has died after being struck by a car in South Florida, according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Haskins, 24, was in Florida with members of the Steelers after being invited down by newly-signed QB Mitchell Trubisky.
Haskins would have turned 25-years-old on May 3rd.
“I am devastated and at a loss for words with the unfortunate passing of Dwayne Haskins,” Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin said. “He quickly became part of our Steelers family upon his arrival in Pittsburgh and was one of our hardest workers, both on the field and in our community. Dwayne was a great teammate, but even more so a tremendous friend to so many. I am truly heartbroken. Our thoughts and prayers are with his wife, Kalabrya, and his entire family during this difficult time.”
In his one season as a college football starter in 2018, Haskins threw 50 touchdown passes, still a Big Ten record, for Ohio State, leading the Buckeyes to a 13-1 record. He also was a finalist for the Heisman Trophy that season.
