Dwayne Haskins was an American football quarterback who played in the National Football League (NFL) for three seasons.
Haskins was born on May 3, 1997, in Highland Park, New Jersey, to Dwayne Haskins Sr. and Tamara Haskins.
Growing up, he attended Bullis School from 2013–to 2016, and played high school football where he passed for 5,308 yards and 54 touchdowns.
He chose the University of Maryland over Rutgers University to play college football but later decided to attend Ohio State after Maryland football coach Randy Edsall was fired mid-season.
After a standout junior season at Ohio State, Haskins was selected 15th overall by the Washington Commanders in the 2019 draft.
Haskins spent two turbulent seasons with Washington before signing in Pittsburgh before last season. Injuries to other quarterbacks on the Commanders roster led to Haskins starting seven games as a rookie.
