Green Bay Packers wide receiver and the newest winner of Dancing With The Stars is struggling with his new fame from the show. Despite catching more passes than any other Green Bay Packers receiver, more people know Driver from the celebrity dance competition.
The 13-year NFL veteran told ESPN Radio’s Scott Van Pelt, “As a dancer at this point. I think it’s more of the men, they still look at you as the NFL player but I think the women now look at you as ‘hey that’s that guy who was on Dancing With the Stars, he won it.’ Then they say ‘oh yeah that is Donald Driver.’ No one cares about you playing football anymore; they do care about you winning Dancing With the Stars though.”
Driver has had a busy off season including restructuring his contract with the Green Bay Packers, keeping him with the team until retirement.
After winning the competition last week Driver said, “It took me 13 years to win a Super Bowl. But it only took me one season to win a mirror ball. I’ve been watching the show for a long time and now I know what J.R. felt last year. That is truly something special. I feel the same way. Right now I’m on cloud nine.”
