GREEN BAY - The accolades keep coming for a newly retired Packers player.
The popular former wide receiver Donald Driver now has his own street in downtown Green Bay.
Hundreds of fans packed the corner of what used to be Dousman and Pearl, now renamed Donald Driver Way.
They gathered to honor number 80, who received a hero's welcome.
"We have sealed the deal with this man, and he is ours forever now," said Dale Decker of Two Rivers.
This re-painted, larger-than-life homage to the forward pass was also unveiled, with a little hiccup: the sheet covering the statue refused to budge at first.
The street sign and statue left Driver speechless.
"To the fans, this is..." Driver began as he took the podium. He lost his composure, nearly breaking down in tears.
A fan in the crowd yelled out, "you're a Packer forever, Donald!"
The man from humble beginnings appeared truly humbled by the honors.
"From coming living on the streets to now having a street of your own, I would never have imagined in a million years that this would happen, So I think it's a tribute to my kids and my family of what we've been through," said Driver, holding his youngest daughter, Charity.
Driver's children helped out with an additional dedication at the Green Bay Children's Museum of a miniature Donald Driver Way.
"This is probably better than having it on an actual street because that's where it all starts, you know, with your children and trying to rear them and nurture them to their full potential," said Betina Driver, his wife.
Fans, including Green Bay Mayor Jim Schmitt, say the care his family gave to others will be Driver's lasting legacy.
"The way I view him, and from what I know of Donald Driver, is a little bit more about community and a little less about football, and I feel it was appropriate," said Mayor Schmitt.
"I think he exemplifies everything that is good about human beings," said Jennifer Garner of Green Bay.
"He's a great guy and he's a packer through and through," said Glenda Truse of West Bend.
Now the man who has cared so much about area families will be a permanent fixture for generations to look up to.
Driver and his family will be in town through tomorrow.
