Donald Driver is an Inspiration

Donald Driver, a Texan turned Wisconsin resident, has been playing with the Green Bay Packers since he was chosen in the 1999 NFL Draft out of Alcorn State University. Driver currently holds the Packers franchise record for the most TD receptions for any Packer wide receiver. During his time Alcorn State, Donald Driver was a five time “Athlete of the Year” in track and football. Driver is an incredible athlete with an intense background. Before turning his life around, Donald lived in a U-Haul truck and got into quite a bit of trouble with drugs and stealing. But, you would never know he had a shady past if you met the guy. As one of the toughest wide receivers in the NFL, Driver is talented, smart and an all around great guy. Driver currently hosts “Inside the Huddle with Donald Driver” which is a statewide TV show in its 7th season as of 2009. When he isn’t talking football, Driver tries to give back to the community and even started his own “Donald Driver Foundation” for children unable to pay their hospital bills.
