The Pro Football Hall of Famer, holding a football on set, did part of his signature dance on set after being prompted during the reveal.

“Dad, please don’t embarrass me,” he said his daughter told him.

Michael Strahan, the Hall of Fame defensive end who is now an on-air personality, had a message for his fellow retired pro football player.

“I know you’ll bring the swagger to the ballroom, man, because you brought it on the field. ”

“Now," he added, “we’ll see if you still have the moves.”

The other cast members set to compete this season are: Bachelorette Hannah Brown, Karamo Brown from “Queer Eye,” former NBA star Lamar Odom, “Dawson’s Creek” actor James Van Der Beek, supermodel Christie Brinkley, country superstar Lauren Alaina, former Fifth Harmony member Ally Brooke, actress Kate Flannery, comedian Kel Mitchell, The Supremes musician Mary Wilson, and former White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer.

This season’s premiere is at 8 p.m. Sept. 16 on ABC.
