As a child, Donald Driver was often homeless and had to beat the odds to become a successful athlete and author. Now the Super Bowl champ prides himself on giving back to the community with his charity, the Donald Driver Foundation. There is no doubt that Donald Driver’s childhood experiences have taught him how to work hard for what he wants.
Now Donald is putting all his efforts into becoming the next Dancing With The Stars champ. TMZ is reporting that Donald is working “himself to the bone” to beat out the rest of the competitors. Donald and his partner, Peta Murgatroyd, work long hours and then Donald goes home and watches YouTube videos of dances. Yesterday Donald tweeted his fans, ”Me @PetaMurgatroyd are finished for the day! Great work! But she had me mad for about a hr. But I got the move.” A source told TMZ, “Donald’s work ethic is insane.” The source also shared that Donald’s goal is not to just dance like a celebrity, but like one of the pros.
