Ohio State’s CJ Stroud wears Dwayne Haskins jersey in spring game

Former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins symbolically threw a final touchdown at Ohio Stadium on Saturday afternoon, as the second in redshirt C.J. Stroud donned his black alternate jersey for the spring game opener.

With the Buckeyes’ first-team offense facing a 2nd-and-11 from the 29-yard line, Stroud found a junior wide receptionr Jaxon Smith-Njigba across the middle of the field. He quickly ran into the end zone for the first score of the annual scrimmage to put the attack up 6-0.

After celebrating with his teammates, Stroud pointed to the nameplate on the back of his jersey, which featured Haskins’ last name. It was another tribute to Haskins, who died last weekend after being hit by a truck on a South Florida highway.

Additionally, Ohio State is wearing helmet decals honoring Haskins on Saturday and held a moment of silence before the game. The Buckeyes also painted Haskins’ initial on the turf at Ohio Stadium and will show a video tribute at halftime.

It’s unclear if this is the exact black alternate jersey Haskins wore in Ohio State’s 36-31 win over Nebraska in 2018, but it’s worth noting that the kit helped Stroud pull it off. at the end of the trip and store it in a safe place on the sidelines.
