Greenway Named Honorary Captain

Sept. 30, 2010

IOWA CITY, Iowa – Former University of Iowa All-American linebacker Chad Greenway has been named honorary captain for Saturday’s homecoming game against Penn State. The Hawkeyes face the Nittany Lions in an ESPN televised game with kickoff set for 7:06 p.m., in Kinnick Stadium. The game is sold out, which means Iowa has sold out 46 of its last 48 home games.

Greenway was named an Iowa co-captain and was one of the Hawkeye MVP’s following the 2005 season. He is a four time letterwinner (2002-05) for the Hawkeyes. He was drafted in the first round of the 2006 NFL draft by the Minnesota Vikings where he is currently a starting linebacker.

Greenway was a two-time first-team all-Big Ten honoree. His 416 career tackles rank fifth on the all-time Iowa tackle charts. His 156 tackles during the 2005 season is the third most by a Hawkeye defender in a season. His tackle totals in 2003 (132, 15th) and 2004 (113, 39th) also rank high on Iowa’s season tackle charts.

Greenway will accompany the Iowa captains to the center of the field for the pre-game coin-flip. He will also be with the Hawkeyes in the locker room before and after the game and on the sidelines during the contest.
