Greenway Named National Defensive Player of the Week

Sept. 5, 2004

Junior linebacker Chad Greenway today was named the Walter Camp Football Foundation National 1-A Defensive Player of the Week after Saturday’s outstanding performance in 13th-ranked Iowa’s 39-7 victory over Kent State.

Greenway led the Hawkeye defense, intercepting two passes and returning them for 54 yards, including one 30-yarder for a touchdown. He also collected a team-best 10 tackles (6 solo, 4 assists), including two for loss and recorded one pass breakup as Iowa held the Golden Flashes to minus 13 yards rushing and just 110 total yards. On special teams, the native of Mt. Vernon, SD, blocked his second career punt, which resulted in a field goal.

Greenway is on the 2004 Dick Butkus Award Watch List, which is annually given to the nation’s top college linebacker.

No. 13 Iowa returns to action Saturday (11:10 a.m., ESPN Plus) when it hosts in-state rival Iowa State in the first event of the Hy-Vee Cy-Hawk Series.
