Former Michigan quarterback Shea Patterson paid tribute to former Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins on Sunday, as the ex-Wolverine prepared for his first USFL game with the Michigan Panthers.

Patterson, who played against Haskins in 2018, honored the memory of late Buckeye by writing the quarterback’s nickname and number, “Simba 7,” on his wrist tape. Below is the image, captured by Brian Powers:

Patterson and Haskins played against each other one time in the rival series. Haskins completed 20-of-31 pass attempts for 396 yards and 6 touchdowns in a 62-39 win. Patterson ended the game with 187 yards, 3 touchdowns and an interception.

It was an incredibly kind and thoughtful gesture from Patterson to honor Haskins on Sunday.

Patterson, who was the first overall pick by the Michigan Panthers in the USFL draft, ended Sunday’s game completing 17-of-24 passes for 192 yards and a touchdown. He also rushed for 31 yards on 7 carries.

Saturday, Ohio State honored Haskins in a number of ways during the spring game. A tribute video was played at halftime, quarterback CJ Stroud wore Haskins’ name on the back of his jersey and the initials “DH” were painted at the 7-yard line of the field at Ohio Stadium.

“I just wanted to honor his last moment in The Shoe,” Stroud said after Ohio State’s spring game Saturday. “He changed the culture of quarterbacks here. He definitely left a legacy here.”
