There is a long tradition of grid-iron champs succeeding on Dancing with the Stars. Warren Sapp, the former Buccaneer and Raider, boasts 96.5 career sacks, the second highest total sacks for a defensive lineman. This man is strong and is no stranger to hard work and long, intense practices. He’s going to need a lot of discipline to learn how to dance, and professional athletes don’t get to be where they are by lounging around. Football players have to have enormous dexterity and nimbleness. They’ve got to be strong and powerful, but also quick and nimble and they need to be able to change directions quickly. These are all key traits that go into making a great dancer as well. Plus, he looks like he’s got some moves in these pictures.
Former Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive star Warren Sapp made a bit of a splash during ABC’s hit reality competition Dancing With the Stars — landing near the top of the competition with a spirited hustle that earned 25 points and brought the crowd to its feet.
"Big boys can dance,” exclaimed excitable judge Tampa Bay Buccaneers after the performance by Sapp, who stepped confidently around partner Kym Johnson. “You showed us all.” That big body was movin’! The Audience loved it, too. Hey, the judges agreed with me. Len said “That’s what I’m talking about!” Bruno was so excited that I don’t know what the heck he said and Carrie Ann told Warren that he did a great job. Scores: 8+8+9=28
