    Chad Greenway: Ranked #1 Hawkeye men's athlete

    Saturday, July 1, 2006

    [size=18px]Top 10 Hawkeye men's athletes[/size]

    Meet the 10 brightest stars in Iowa athletics

    His gift for gab made former Iowa football player Chad Greenway a favorite among members of the media.

    His talent made him one of the best linebackers in school history.

    It also made Greenway the No. 1 choice on the Press-Citizen's list of top 10 male athletes from the University of Iowa in 2005-06.

    Here is a closer look at picks one through 10.

    1. Chad Greenway, sr., football. He made first-team all-Big Ten and second-team All-America after leading Iowa in tackles this past season. The Minnesota Vikings liked Greenway enough to select him in the first round of the NFL draft -- not bad for somebody who played nine-man football in high school. Greenway was the 13th Hawkeye in the last 40 years to be taken in the first round. He and fellow linebacker Abdul Hodge both ended their careers ranked in the top five on Iowa's all-time tackles list. A native of Mt. Vernon, S.D., Greenway is yet another example of a lightly recruited high school player who became a star at Iowa under coach Kirk Ferentz.

    I hope so too. It's a big step from "Big 10" football to the pro level.

    ...ummmmm....what? A keg? Yeah...a little brewsky would taste good right now.

    OH!!!! You didn't mean "bring" literally...you meant it like, "bring it, biatch!!!", not "Are you bringing potatoe salad?"

    Holy smokes Singer, how did you run across an article in Hawk Central? You're not only PP.O Anchorman, but also PP.O Newshound.

    That's funny as hell Caine. The 3 of us are definitely going to have a great time at the Packers game.

    Hope we can put Shock, Cajun & WBL into that outing as well.
