Former DSU football player killed fighting fire in Black Hills

I was alerted to this story this evening and it is definitely worth sharing.

Former Dickinson State football player Trampus Haskvitz died Thursday afternoon from injuries suffered after he was caught in a burn over while fighting a fire near Edgemont, S.D.

Trampus and his twin brother, John, joined the Blue Hawks in the fall of 2006 as redshirt freshmen.  John left the team after that season but Trampus, a wide receiver, stayed on for the next two seasons, playing mostly on special teams.

Trampus went to Hot Springs (S.D.) High School. Along with his brother, he was employed by the South Dakota Wildland Fire Suppression Division.
