Donald Driver, a wide receiver for the Green Bay Packers, is looking forward to bringing his “smile” and his “character” to the dance floor of “Dancing With The Stars” and says a Mirror Ball Trophy would pair up well with the one his team earned for winning the Super Bowl last year.
The 37-year-old football player was announced as a new cast member of the 14th season of the ABC ballroom dancing show on Tuesday, February 28, on “Good Morning America.” Driver is paired up with pro dancer Peta Murgatroyd. They have already begun rehearsing.
Driver was drafted by the Packers after finishing his football career at Alcorn State University in 1999. The team won the Super Bowl in 2011, marking its first victory since 1997.
