#TeamShadSquad were announced as the DWTS season 24 champions
during Tuesday night's finals, happily accepting the coveted Mirrorball trophy and hopping into a car with hosts Tom Bergeron and Erin Andrews.
Host Erin Andrews revealed the 32-year-old athlete spent a total of 362 hours in rehearsal, the most of any contestant on the show. “I push myself so hard, because working hard is all I know,” Rashad said. “I just wanted to come out here, get to know myself and fight for this.”
Luckily, the two will be dancing together over the summer. It was announced during the finale that Rashad is officially joining the DWTS Live! Hot Summer Nights tour
, and will travel with the pro and troupe dancers for as long as he can, pending his No. 1 priority, football.
