Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway may want to look into a post-football career working for the Coast Guard.

According to KARE 11-TV in Minnesota, Greenway helped rescue a couple from their boat, which had become uncontrollable on Lake Minnetonka on Monday afternoon.

Crystal and Edward Alexis were out on the lake gazing at houses lining the shores when the steering of the boat became inoperable. The boat was spinning in circles and drifting toward the rocks lining the banks.

Greenway jumped into the water and guided the vessel out of danger under further help could arrive.

“I just ran down, of course with my two little girls following behind me, trying to stay out of the way, and I figured I’d help them out. It looked like it was dangerous,” Greenway said.

Greenway then aided to get the boat secured and able to be towed to safety.
