As the NCAA and NFL worlds continue to process the shocking news of Dwayne Haskins‘ death, tributes continue to pour in for Haskins.

Long before he reached the NFL, Haskins had a love affair with Ohio State University.

On Saturday, video footage of his first visit to Ohio State was unearthed.

An 11 year old Haskins declared “he was going to college here”.

So it is only fitting that his Ohio State coach Urban Meyer published a poignant tribute to Haskins.

What Meyer Said

Posting a picture of Haskins having a tender moment with a baby in what appears to be Ohio Stadium, Meyer wrote:

“Heartbroken to hear of the loss of Dwayne Haskins Jr. My thoughts and prayers go out to his incredible family. One of the greatest QB’s in Ohio State history, but an even better son, teammate, and friend. God Bless!!”

Meyer voices the sentiments of Ohio State fans who gathered at Ohio Stadium to pay their respects and mourn Haskins.

Haskins Legacy

As Meyer said, he was one of the greatest Ohio State quarterbacks ever, but others are remembering him for his big smile and warm personality.

Former Washington teammate, Case Keenum posted a picture of Haskins with his baby boy Kyler Keenum.

His smile and warmth emanate from the photo.

New teammate Mitchell Trubisky, who was in Florida with Haskins and other Steelers players training at the time of the accident, also referenced Haskins’ “big heart and infectious smile”.


It will take far longer than a day to digest this tragedy.

We cannot imagine what Haskins’ wife and family members are going through.

Haskins was about to turn 25 on May 3.

It is sad that we were not privy to these pictures and stories while Haskins was alive, but they do honor his memory in a lovely and bittersweet way.

Rest In Peace Dwayne Haskins.
