Iowa senior linebacker Chad Greenway and junior quarterback Drew Tate are two of 40 players named to the Walter Camp Foundation “Watch List” for the Walter Camp Player of the Year award. The Walter Camp award is the fourth-oldest individual college football accolade.

The 2005 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, voted on by Division I-A head coaches and sports information directors, is announced on the ESPN/Home Depot College Football Awards show in December. The award is presented at the Foundation’s annual national awards banquet in February on the Yale University campus in New Haven, CT.

Greenway (6-4, 244) is a native of Mt. Vernon, SD, who earned all-Big Ten and all-America honors as a junior. He has been named to several pre-season all-America teams for 2005 and is also on pre-season watch lists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy and the Lott Trophy. Greenway has ranked second on the team in tackles in each of the past two seasons and begins his final season with 260 career stops.

Tate (6-0, 185) is a native of Baytown, TX, where he attended Robert E. Lee HS. Tate earned first team all-Big Ten honors a year ago in his first season as a starter and was named the Most Valuable Player in the 2005 Capital One Bowl.

Earlier this month Tate was voted the Big Ten pre-season Offensive Player of the Year by the Big Ten Conference media.

Iowa opens the 2005 season Sept. 3, hosting Ball State in Kinnick Stadium.
