The 14th season of Dancing With The Stars is in the books and even though athletes usually fare well in this competition, it may have been a little bit of a surprise that this year’s winner came away with the victory.

Green Bay Packers receiver Donald Driver, along with partner Peta Murgatroyd, came together to edge out Welsh classical singer Katherine Jenkins and Mark Ballas, as well as Latin television star William Levy and Cheryl Burke. Jenkins and Ballas rolled through the first half of the competition, but stumbled in the latter part and it was Driver that came into the finale as a 3/2 favorite, although Jenkins wasn’t far behind at 7/4 and Levy was 19/10. It had to feel good for Murgatroyd, who made her debut as a professional with basketball player Metta World Peace last season and was booted off in the first week, but now she is a champion of the competition.
As is Driver, who is the seventh athlete to win Dancing With The Stars in 14 seasons and the third player from the NFL as Hall of Famer Emmitt Smith won in Season 3, and then the newly-retired Hines Ward won in Season 12. Athletes seem to have what it takes in regards to this show as they have the rhythm, but more importantly, it is ingrained in them to train until you get it right and that was a key for Driver and Murgatroyd, who weren’t always on the same page at the beginning of the competition, but they slowly improved and eventually, they pulled it together when they needed to, which has been a staple of Driver’s football career.
Next season, get ready for an all-star cast of celebrities and fan favorites on the 15th season of Dancing With The Stars!
