You already know they have fancy footwork on the football field, but who knew football players could be so talented on the dance floor?
Green Bay Packer Donald Driver proves that the NFL still dominates in the ballroom on “Dancing With the Stars.” Driver, 37, a 13-year veteran who’s played his entire career with the Packers at wide receiver, is among the leaders on the current season of “Dancing” thanks to a few great moves, including a memorable Team Paso Doble.

For Driver, who was part of Green Bay’s Super Bowl season in 2011, “Dancing” turned out to be an experience not that much different from his day job.
“For whatever reason, when the cameras come on, it’s time to have fun. It’s game time. It seemed like I was playing a football game,” he told Greenbayhub.com.
“What I want people to know is not just that I’m a great football player, but also I can ballroom dance. And not even that, but I’m compassionate, a great husband, a great father and a great Christian man. “
Wife Betina and children Cristian, Christina and Charity traveled to L.A to be with him. His kids have even learned the routines that Driver and professional dance partner Peta Murgatroyd rehearsed during the long sessions to prepare for each week’s routine.
