He's made near annual appearances at the Legends Sports Clinics in Sioux Falls (he'll be there again for the free football clinic June 13) and has closely followed high school football in the state, recalling the youthful excitement of leading Stickney Mount Vernon to consecutive Class 9AA state titles in 1999 and 2000.

would like to play at least three more seasons, preferably staying in Minnesota to close out his career.

"You just kind of play the hand you're dealt in this league, and clearly (the owners and front office) thought it was time to move on," Greenway says of the coaching change. "They want to see progress and get back in the playoffs, back in a position to compete for Super Bowls.

season and enter a fresh era. With a new coach in Mike Zimmer, a new stadium on the way and perhaps a new quarterback in first round draft pick Teddy Bridgewater, there's a sense of urgency that borders on impatience.

But the University of Iowa alum points out that no matter what you call his position (the terminology has changed with every coach), he's always lined up behind the "three Adidas Tech Super Black

´╗┐Chad Greenway's fight to the finish

The Mount Vernon native has stayed relatively healthy since a knee injury wiped out his rookie season, and he plans to go out with the same level of big play intensity that has served him well since his days as a 9 man football standout in South Dakota.

Greenway is anxious, too. Though he supported fired coach Leslie Frazier and was sorry to see him go, the veteran linebacker understands that a newfound momentum must be found, preferably before his playing days are over.

"You get to the point where the clock is ticking, and that's when you have to push harder, not take it easy," says Greenway, 31, who has led the Vikings in tackles for each of the past six seasons, tying Scott Studwell's franchise record. "Sometimes you have to reinvent yourself, and it's sort of interesting to be the old guy in the room. You're not the young pup anymore, and relying on experience is better sometimes than leaning solely on physical abilities."

"There are a lot of programs that are sort of on the border between 9 man and 11 man, and it's hard for them to really identify who they really are when things are constantly changing. I just want to see the sport grow with the rest of the country, because there's a lot of talent to be harvested."

"The selection of Barr hasn't changed a whole lot, at least not this year," says the 6 foot 2, 242 pound Greenway, a two time Pro Bowl selection who tallied 148 tackles and three sacks in 2013. "He's a very talented player with a high motor, but I expect to be working out of my same position."

"Christian did a lot of good things, but people were really negative on how his career transpired," says Greenway. "The reality in the NFL is that you need to win and you need to win now. Teddy's going to get an opportunity, whether it's this year or in two years, but I don't think we're going to rush it."Ever since Greenway was drafted 17th overall by the Vikings in 2006, watching the picks unfold from his family home in Mount Vernon, he has maintained close ties to South Dakota while living out his NFL dream.

Greenway will never forget how family, friends and neighbors mindful of Alan's frequent trips for treatment turned out in droves last fall Adidas Rose Pink Nmd to help harvest 500 acres of soybeans that otherwise might have been in jeopardy.

Like many others, the former Argus Leader Elite 45 captain was disturbed when he saw South Dakota adopt a seven class system for football and expressed surprise recently when the state activities board decided to keep that system alive through at least 2016.

The prolonged illness led the NFL linebacker to spend more time at the family farm northeast of Mount Vernon, where his father taught him about cattle and hogs and also instilled the family's love of athletics. Alan was a skilled football player and wrestler who graduated from Mount Vernon High in 1976.

"He's in remission and doing well; he's able to be at home," says Chad, who appeared at the 150th anniversary gala for the Mayo Clinic last week to show his appreciation. "He's not the old version of himself where he's out working all day, but he's allowed to be outside doing stuff and be part of that process. After all he's been through, that's certainly a blessing."

Greenway's connection to home became even stronger two years ago when his father, Alan, was diagnosed with leukemia, leading to numerous trips to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn., and eventually a stem cell transplant.

"In a state with a lot of rural, small town teams, you don't want to take opportunities away, but you want to raise the level of competitiveness," says Greenway. "I think we need fewer classes rather than more, because when you spread things out, you change the whole dynamic.

"Leslie had that defensive side mentality like Zimmer does, but there's more than one way to coach a football team, and their approaches are completely different. Obviously Zimmer is passionate and wants to be great, and he's been waiting a long time to get his shot."It was Zimmer's influence that pushed Minnesota toward drafting UCLA linebacker Anthony Barr with the ninth overall pick, which some viewed as a challenge to Greenway at the strongside linebacker spot.

As for the quarterback drama, Greenway would have preferred to see Christian Ponder assert himself as the no doubt starter, but he understands the reality of pro football and the nature of that position. It's quite possible that Matt Cassel gets the early starting nod, with Bridgewater waiting in the wings.
