It was a tragic accident that shocked the NFL world last week.  Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins died early Saturday morning after he was struck by a dump truck while he was walking on a South Florida highway. Haskins was only 24 years old.

Haskins, a #9 FCAR, had high hopes when coming into the league in 2019.  From a Brain Type’s perspective, his high hopes were not without merit.  “I am devastated and at a loss for words with the unfortunate passing of Dwayne Haskins,” Steelers coach Mike Tomlin (#13 FCIR) said in a statement.  “He quickly became part of our Steelers family upon his arrival in Pittsburgh and was one of our hardest workers, both on the field and in our community. Dwayne was a great teammate, but even more so a tremendous friend to so many. I am truly heartbroken.”

True to #9 form, Haskins was known as a very hard worker.  Commanders owners Daniel and Tanya Snyder also said in a statement. “He was a young man with a tremendous amount of potential who had infectious personality. To say we are heartbroken is an understatement.”  Yet again, an “infectious” personality often describes the outdoing, pied-piper #9.  Ben Roethlisberger (#13 FCIR) noted of Haskins, “I only had the privilege to know D-Hask for a short time, but in that time I got to meet a young man that didn’t seem to ever have a bad day. He came to work everyday with a smile on his face and energy and love in his heart.”

Wow!  What a description!  And what a tragedy to lose such a warm, talented individual.  Steelers wide receiver Chase Claypool lastly had this to say about Dwayne  “I spent your final moments with you and I can’t help but think about how selfless you were in those moments,” Claypool wrote. “All you cared about was making sure that everyone around you was okay and I can’t thank you enough for that. You are what I strive to be.”
