“The whole decision to go to D.C. was just, I feel like everybody in this day and age likes to just talk and I wanted to be about action, I wanted to go down there and be a part of the difference,” says Haskins. “It was my first protest ever, I never thought I’d ever be able to actually go to a protest especially in this day and age, so it was just crazy to be there. I talked to [Senior Vice President of Player Development] Doug [Williams], I talked to [Senior Director of Player Development Malcolm Blacken] about trying to get in touch with someone that was down there and go walk up to people. I went down there and it was just a great experience. Just the energy and the atmosphere when you walk around people and how much you’re supporting the cause. And just being a normal person felt great.”

Haskins says he’ll continue to speak up about race relations surrounding the league.
