Former Ohio State Buckeyes quarterback Dwayne Haskins passed away on Saturday when he was hit by a dump truck. Haskins was in Florida working out with his Pittsburgh Steelers teammates.

In the aftermath of his sudden and tragic passing, Haskins’s alma mater paid tribute to him.

Urban Meyer and Ryan Day, who both coached Haskins with the Buckeyes, honored their former quarterback, as well.

They were not alone.

Many fellow Ohio State alums — some who were teammates of Haskins, some who were not — took to Twitter to pay tribute to Haskins.

Haskins played for Ohio State from 2016-2018. He got into eight games in 2017 off of the bench and started all 14 games for the Buckeyes in 2018, going 13-1.

His final game for the Buckeyes was a 28-23 win in the Rose Bowl over Washington. Haskins won MVP honors in that game. That Rose Bowl effort — as well as the childhood declaration that he’d play at Ohio State — was also remembered on Saturday.

Following his time at Ohio State, Haskins was drafted by the Washington Commanders in 2019. He remained in Washington for two years and signed with Pittsburgh in 2021. Haskins was in Florida working out with his Steelers teammates at the time of his passing.
