Donald Driver's unforgettable career

Posted:
WAUSAU (WAOW) -

Donald Driver has been a part of Packers nation for 14 seasons.

"Regardless of what happens you're going to miss the guys that you built relationships with," Driver said.

In his time, Driver has racked up 743 receptions, had more than 10,000 receiving yards, and reached pay dirt 61 times. That means a whole lot of touchdown dances

Speaking of dancing, many of us know Driver is no stranger to the dance floor.

Last year the Super Bowl champion showed the green and gold faithful his fancy footwork could be taken beyond the gridiron winning the Mirror Ball trophy on ABC's "Dancing with the Stars."

In an interview at his charity softball game this past summer, Driver told fans their support means everything.

"Packers fans had my back the whole way, that's why we won and brought the trophy back to Titletown," Driver said. 

And fans say they'll always have his back.

"I'm looking forward to seeing him on FOX News or FOX Sports so we can still see his smile," Ginger LeBlanc of Wausau said.

That fan support was especially apparent when driver made a special appearance on Newsline 9's Pack Attack in 2009.

And though this season didn't end with another ring, fans say they're glad he suited up for one more year. 

"I wanted him to go out big with a touchdown or something," Packers fan Ken Boho said.

Driver said after the loss to the 49ers that he's just grateful he had the opportunity to play for the pack.

"I've always been about helping the team win, that's what I've been about since 1999 and it hasn't changed," Driver said.

So after all the receptions, the yards, the touchdowns, and touchdown dances, it now ends… right where it all began.
