Donald Driver spent all 14 years of his career with the Green Bay Packers, and he is one of the most popular players in team history. While there are plenty of No. 80 jerseys floating around the Green Bay area at the moment, the owner of one of them may be his biggest fan. Angie LeRoy, a 78-year-old cancer survivor from Bellevue, recently decorated her door to honor Driver and his impending retirement. She tried and was unable to score tickets to his official retirement party, but she had a more simple wish anyway. “He is my idol,” LeRoy said according to FOX 11. “I was a cancer survivor, and I just hope someday I can get a big hug from him.” Her wish came true on Wednesday. Before Driver left Green Bay with his family, he paid LeRoy a surprise visit and gave her the hug she has been waiting for. He also autographed a number of items for her, including the No. 80 jersey that she happened to be wearing when Driver knocked on her door. To top it all off, a FOX 11 viewer gave LeRoy an extra ticket to Driver’s retirement ceremony and she was able to attend. The gesture from Driver proves that he’s a class act, not that we weren’t already aware of that.
