Greenway Finalist For "Whizzer" White Award

USA TODAY Sports

By being selected as an alternate to the Pro Bowl, as well as being a second-team All-Pro, Minnesota Vikings' linebacker Chad Greenway has been recognized this season for his performance on the field. There's a chance that, next week, he will be recognized for some of the things he does off the field as well.

Greenway has been named one of the five finalists for this year's Byron "Whizzer" White Award, which recognizes players who go above and beyond to perform community service in their team cities and hometowns.

The other four finalists for the award are Chicago Bears cornerback Charles Tillman, Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten, Cleveland Browns tight end Benjamin Watson, and Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch.

Greenway's "Lead the Way Foundation" generates revenue to provide aid to local athletics and disadvantaged or disabled children who reside in South Dakota, Minnesota and Iowa. The foundation also donated $25,000 to the new playground at Amplatz Children's Hospital that was spearheaded by his Vikings' teammate, center John Sullivan.
