Greenway retires from NFL

Longtime Sanford POWER athlete and supporter Chad Greenway is calling it a career after 11 seasons with the Minnesota Vikings.

A linebacker, Greenway amassed more than 1,300 tackles and twice was named to the Pro Bowl. He also developed a big reputation off the field for his charity work, earning finalist honors for the NFL Man of the Year award on four occasions.

He was a first-round pick in the NFL draft out of the University of Iowa, after a standout high school career at the nine-man level in South Dakota. Here’s more from the Star-Tribune.
