Chad Greenway’s name is forever etched in Minnesota Vikings lore. As the team’s fourth all-time leading tackler and three-time defensive MVP, he hangs up his helmet and shoulder pads as one of Minnesota’s most beloved professional athletes.
Greenway leaves behind an unmatched legacy, both on and off the field. His 11-year career—spent entirely in purple and gold—began on a small farm in South Dakota, where he continues to find inspiration in life after football.
“Not only your small town, not only your community but also your family. That’s something I always think about every day in the decisions I make. I truly want to make them proud”
Through his charitable foundation, Lead the Way, Greenway is bridging the gap between his time with the Vikings and his passion for enriching the lives of those in need. Whether you cheered for Greenway on Sundays or donated through More Than Words, his work in the area of cancer research is something we can all be proud of.
