The Bullis School has announced a Celebration of Life for Dwayne Haskins, Jr., who graduated from the school in 2016. The celebration will take place on Sunday, April 24th at 7pm at the Bullis School’s Kline Alumni Stadium.
Haskins was tragically killed when he was hit by a vehicle in South Florida on April 9th.
Haskins was born and raised in New Jersey, but moved to Gaithersburg while attending The Bullis School in Potomac for high school.
When Haskins was in high school he was the sports editor for his high school newspaper, The Bullis Bulldog. In an article he wrote for the Potomac high school back in 2015, he predicted that Washington may need to draft a new quarterback in the next five years.
Four years later, in 2019, Washington drafted Dwayne Haskins with the 15th pick in the NFL Draft.
“Bullis School welcomes friends, family, and alumni to celebrate the life of Dwayne Haskins, Jr. ’16 on Sunday, April 24, at 7 PM at Bullis School, Kline Alumni Stadium.”
