“Jersey raised me, Maryland made me.”
Dwayne Haskins was born and raised in New Jersey, but he moved to Gaithersburg while attending The Bullis School in Potomac.
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. The Haskins family watched that draft at Bowlmor in Gaithersburg.
Dwayne Haskins is now the starting quarterback for the Washington Football Team. Today he hopes to get the team off to a winning start against the Philadelphia Eagles.
