Driver told Greenbayhub.com that a highlight of his “Dancing” experience was spending time with music legend Gladys Knight who was eliminated last week.
“I love being here,” Driver says. “You’re getting to see celebrities that you’d probably never see if I was in Dallas or Green Bay. You get to say “hello” to them and it’s crazy of how big of a fan they are of you. It’s something special.”
But Green Bay fans, have no fear. Driver is planning on returning to Lambeau Field to begin his 14th season in the NFL, regardless of whether he walks off with the trophy.
Former Dallas Cowboys running back Emmit Smith, and former Pittsburgh Steeler Hines Ward are the two NFL players who’ve won it previously, so it’s not that much of a long shot.
“Once it’s all said and done and ‘Dancing With the Stars’ is over, I’m heading back to Dallas, then from there, back to Green Bay,’’ Driver told Greenbayhub.com. “I always said it’s good to visit Hollywood, but it’s not good to stay.’’
