Haskins taken far too soon

Candlelight Vigil Held for the 24-year-old.
Candlelight Vigil Held for the 24-year-old.

The 24-year-old was tragically killed while trying to cross a Florida freeway and was hit by a dump truck. The former Washington quarterback was spotted with Steelers running back Najee Harris the day before the incident as the roster was doing some workouts before the preseason began.


After being drafted by Washington, the former Ohio State quarterback never reached the lofty heights set for him. But in truth, he did not get a decent run at a starting job at Washington and was released by the organization.

He was then picked up by the Pittsburgh Steelers and was a third-string backup to Ben Roethlisberger and Mason Rudolph last season. It is a horrible time for the quarterback's family and friends as his life was tragically cut too short.
