Lammi Sports Management is the exclusive marketing agency for Green Bay Packers all-time leading receiver, Super Bowl Champion, Dancing with the Stars Champion and 2013 AMVETS Humanitarian of the Year Donald Driver. The four-time Pro-Bowl receiver is the proud holder of Packers records in all-time receptions and receiving yards. On his climb to the top of the franchise's history books, Driver has supplanted greats like Don Hutson and Sterling Sharpe. In 2011, the four-time Pro bowler continues to build upon his tradition of excellence by leading a dynamic group of receivers commonly referred to as the best in the NFL. In his 13th season with Green Bay, Donald owns nearly every Packers receiving record.
In 2011 Donald was named the most marketable athlete in Wisconsin by Nielsenratings. Donald was announced to the season 14 cast of ABC's hit show 'Dancing With the Stars' and is set to make his dancing debut in March of 2012. Donald joined the statewide TV show Inside the Huddlefor his eighth season as the show’s host while continuing his radio relationship with AM 620 WTMJ, Milwaukee’s #1 rated radio station. Donald is at the center of marketing campaigns for top companies such as Time Warner Cable, McDonald's, Goodwill and Jani-King. Donald authored three children's books titled Quickie Handles a Loss, Quickie Makes the Team, and Quickie Goes to the Big Game inspired by bedtime stories with his two children.
Driver is regarded as the Green Bay Packers’ most versatile and agile pass catcher. “He’s just to me an excellent football player, a great leader for our group of receivers, a true professional and a hard-working guy in practice”, stated former Green Bay receivers coach Jimmy Robinson. A top performer his entire career, Driver has been a four time Pro Bowl selection (2002, 2006, 2007 and 2010). Donald has led the Packers receiving attack over the past nine seasons accumulating over 9,000 yards and 50 touchdowns. In 2007 Donald became Lambeau Field’s all-time leader in receptions, surpassing Antonio Freeman in just the Packers’ third game of the season.
In addition to being extraordinary on the field, Donald is also a true role model off the field. Persevering through incredible setbacks has sparked Donald to become one of the most active Green Bay Packers in the community; making over 300 appearances since his rookie 1999 season. In the spring of 2001, Donald andhis wife Betina created the “Donald Driver Foundation”, which offers assistance to ill children with unmanageable hospital bills, provides housing for the homeless, and donates to a variety of local charities. In December of 2003, the foundation put two previously homeless families in new, fully furnished homes.
Donald has also donated much of his time and efforts to such institutions as Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Special Olympics Wisconsin and Goodwill Industries. In 2001, Driver was awarded the “Community Service Award” by the Green Bay Chamber of Commerce in recognition of his outstanding community involvement. Donald also received the Walter Payton Man of the Year award in 2002, the only NFL award that recognizes off-the-field community service as well as playing excellence. In 2005 he was awarded the Ed Block Courage award by his Green Bay teammates. In January of 2010, Donald received the prestigious Red Smith Award for his work on and off the football field. If Donald Driver is a Pro Bowl player on the football field, he is surely an MVP in life.
