Driver wins, fans rejoice

Donald Driver is a dancing champion. Tuesday night the Packers wide receiver was crowned the winner of the 14th season of Dancing with the Stars. And to celebrate, he showcased a dance that probably would have gotten him fined in the NFL.

"I was on fire!" Drive told reporters during his appearance on Good Morning America. "I had to roll around to put myself out."

And fans say they knew he had the moves to make it.

"Oh my gosh, my husband was actually sleeping and I woke him up screaming 'Donald won, Donald Won," DWTS fan Christine Bremer-Zoromski said.

"I was thrilled," Linda Pergande said. "I loved his moves at the end when he was rolling around, that was fun."

Many fans point to Driver's freestyle dance Monday night that put him above the rest.

"He is our Packer hero," Bremer-Zoromski said.

Even before the announcement, Driver's teammates said they knew that mirror ball trophy would be on its way to Green Bay.

"He's done an incredible job on the show. And he's been himself, his personality definitely comes out," Packers QB Aaron Rodgers told the media after the teams first day of practice.

But, the position of his number one fan lies within his family.

"We're the champions," Driver's son Christian said holding up the mirror ball.

When asked if he had coached his Dad, Christian replied, "I helped him win by encouraging him and telling him you can do it, you can win."

And win he did. The season officially ended with each finalist doing one last dance in Times Square. For Driver, it's back to the grid iron. And as he puts his tap shoes away, he'll head back to Titletown...another title in hand.
