As we inch closer to the new season of Dancing With The Stars, we’ve heard numerous celebrity names leaked out, as well as some pro dancer news. However, only one celebrity has been confirmed by ABC, and his name was announced last night during the Oscars. Superbowl star Jacoby Jones of the Baltimore Ravens will be lacing up his dance shoes this season for our enjoyment!
From dancing his way to a Superbowl win to hitting the floor on Dancing With The Stars, that is what 2013 will bring for Baltimore Ravens’ wide receiver/kick return specialist, Jacoby Jones. ABC made the announcement last night during the Oscars, through a commercial break. The commercial boasted: “Jacoby Jones just won a Superbowl ring. What is he going to do next? Dance!”
It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise as Jones has previously expressed his interest in Dancing With The Stars. After the Superbowl, Jacoby appeared on Jimmy Kimmel, and when asked whether or not he wanted to hit the dance floor, Jones replied: “Oh yes sir. I’ll get it done, I’ll get it done, baby.”
And Jacoby Jones, who set a playoff record when he returned a kickoff 108 yards for a touchdown during the Superbowl, sure loves to dance. The 28-year-old set a record for the Ravens this season with three return touchdowns, celebrating each with a dance in the endzone.
We know Jacoby can run, but can he dance? And could he win the mirror ball trophy? He’ll definitely be one to watch this season.
