Family members, the Bullis School community and others joined a celebration of life service — which was live-streamed by WUSA9 — at the school for Dwayne Haskins, Jr. on Sunday.
Haskins, who graduated from Bullis School in 2016, died after he was struck while walking on a Florida highway on April 9. He was 24.
He was a quarterback for the Washington Commanders before going to the Pittsburgh Steelers and was a standout player at Bullis.
His younger sister, Tamia Haskins, said she and her “lifelong best friend” shared almost everything with each other — jokes, secrets and dreams. She said she will honor Haskins through her own legacy.
“Until I see you again, save me a seat, because I have so much to share with you,” she said through tears. “I love you so much, bud. Until I see you again.” The Haskins’ parents stood with her.
Haskins’ widow, Kalabrya Haskins, attended the ceremony. Attendees included Commanders’ owner Daniel Snyder and Commanders President Jason Wright. Ohio State University head football coach Ryan Day spoke during the ceremony.
