SPARTA, Wisconsin (WXOW) - As you may have heard, Donald Driver has announced his retirement from the NFL.
One Sparta woman will definitely be missing him on Sundays. Jean Mattakat is a Donald Driver super fan. She has followed him since before he was starter, when she met him at training camp.
She says she was immediately impressed by his genuine and humble attitude. He would recognize her in the stands and take the time to say hi or give her a wink. She even receives Christmas cards from the ex-Packer. When Jean heard Donald was retiring as a Packer, she said she was glad to see him go while he was still on top.
Jean Mattakat said, "The Packers will always be the Packers. But, without him, its gonna be different. It'll definitely be different."
Jean hopes to Driver stays around the Green Bay area and looks forward to seeing him again some day.
