Chiefs to honor Greensburg

August 23, 2007


— They'll ride into Arrowhead Stadium with a police escort and get to be on the field with the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints during pregame warmups.

By the time their special day is done, the football players of Greensburg High School will come away with $50,000 to replace the pads, helmets, jerseys and uniforms that were literally blown away in May when a monster tornado destroyed 95 percent of their small Kansas town.

Players took up a collection among themselves during training camp in River Falls, Wis., and the Chiefs and the NFL also chipped in. Almost all the team's equipment, along with cheerleading gear, was destroyed in the enhanced F5 twister that also killed 10 people on May 4.
