Donald Driver Wins ‘Dancing With the Stars’
Clearly football players know how to shake it on the dance floor.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Donald Driver was crowned the ultimate victor on Tuesday night’s season finale of Dancing With the Stars, season 14.
Driver edged out Cuban actor William Levy and opera singer Katherine Jenkins in a tight race, and joined Hines Ward and Emmitt Smith as former football-playing winners. Jerry Rice, Jason Taylor and Warren Sapp all finished in second in their respective contests.
“This is awesome!” said Driver, ”I would have to say it was a miracle,” Driver added. “We did what we had to do on the floor, and we knew we had to leave it up to the judges and the fans. The fans made the decision, and the fans loved our freestyle last night.”
Now the 37-year old Driver can turn his attention back to football.
Driver has long been rumored to be a potential cut candidate for the Packers, as he is taking up space and preventing Randall Cobb and James Jones from realizing their potential on the field.
However, Driver has stated that he desire to remain a Packer “for life”, and is expected to re-work his current deal in order to remain with the team.
According to The Huffington Post, the next installment of DWTS will feature familiar contestants from past seasons.
