Greenway Ready To Lead

Greenway Ready To Lead
MANKATO, MN -

Not much will be expected from the Minnesota Vikings nationally this season, but a 3-13 2011 campaign isn't stopping Mt. Vernon native Chad Greenway from thinking big.

"If you're in the NFL you're in the business of winning championships and I think for us it's a long term goal its a goal that we talk about within our team and its one day at a time and we know we're not going to be given much of a chance at that but if we keep fighting day in and day out we'll give ourselves a chance," Chad Greenway said

Greenway is coming off a career year for the Vikings in which he recorded a career high 154 tackles and was named to the Pro Bowl. Now in his 6th season in purple and gold, the linebacker is ready to lead.

"Its nice to be in that leadership role and now to be considered one of the veterans of the group. Those young guys, they look to you. I've played 1,000 snaps a year for five years. They understand that you've put the work in and for me it's about going out there and trying to show them what the right way to do things is," Greenway said.

That new role is already taking shape in Mankato. With a young roster Greenway called this three-week camp the most critical of his career.

"This training camp has a little different feel from my perspecitve. It's so nice to have so many fresh faces here ready to work and ready to get a lot done," Greenway said.

Greenway is also ready to go, especially after a difficult off-season.
With his father, Alan, now in stable condition as he continues his fight with cancer, Greenway appreciates all the support from his home state.

"I think its important to thank everybody who's been out there praying for our family and giving us thoughts and prayers and were certainly thankful for all that support from our family and friends back home and all the things the local farmers have done to help my family its really unbelievable," Greenway said.
