Earlier this week, Ohio State announced that it would pay tribute to Dwayne Haskins during its spring game. The former star quarterback for the Buckeyes passed away last weekend in Florida.
On Saturday morning, a photo of Haskins’ initials on Ohio State’s field surfaced on social media.
Not only will the field have Haskins’ initials pained on it, Ohio State players will have “DH” stickers on their helmets.
Ohio State head coach Ryan Day also announced that a halftime video tribute will be displayed for Haskins.

Haskins had an excellent run at Ohio State, earning All-Big Ten honors in 2018 and taking home the Sammy Baugh Trophy. He finished his college career with 5,396 passing yards and 54 touchdown passes.
While talking about his team’s upcoming spring game, Day stressed the importance of honoring Haskins.
“It’ll be nice to have Buckeye Nation together for this event on Saturday to celebrate our team and the hard work we put in this spring, but also to get everybody together to honor Dwayne,” Day said, via Eleven Warriors. “And I think that’s appropriate. So there’s gonna be a lot of excitement, but also a lot of moments in the day that will be deep thoughts based on just our memories with Dwayne and playing in that stadium.”
Ohio State’s spring game is scheduled to kick off at 12 p.m. ET.
