Report: Dwayne Haskins’ High School to Retire Number, Host Memorial Service



Dwayne Haskins High School

The Bullis School will retire Dwayne Haskins’ No. 7, following his sudden death over the weekend, according to a report by Darren Haynes of WUSA-TV in Washington, D.C. Additionally, Haynes reported that Haskins’ family will host a memorial service for him at Bullis School as well as in his hometown of Highland Park, New Jersey. Dates and times for memorial arrangements have not been announced.

Haskins attended Bullis from 2013-16. He passed for over 5,000 yards and 50 touchdowns from 2013-16. He earned all-state honors and was the Maryland Gatorade Player of the Year.

“Dwayne was known as a standout athlete at Bullis, Ohio State, and in the NFL, and here at Bullis we also knew him as an honorable, smart, and family-oriented young man who graduated from college in three years,” head of school Christian Sullivan said in a statement. “His loss will be felt deeply by so many people.”

Haskins was killed when he was struck by a dump truck while walking along Interstate 595 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida Saturday morning. It’s still unclear why Haskins was walking along the highway. An investigation by Florida Highway Patrol is ongoing. Haskins had been in Florida training with teammates at the invitation of fellow quarterback Mitch Trubisky.
