We at vikings.com are lucky enough to have rookie WR Greg Childs blogging for us here in Mankato at Verizon Vikings Training Camp. Below is his first entry on how the first few days of camp have gone for him. Make sure to give him a follow on Twitter at @TheGregChilds85.
What’s up everyone? My name is Greg Childs, and I’m a receiver for the Minnesota Vikings. This year is my first training camp in the NFL and I’m loving every second of it. It’s a lot of hard work, but nothing worth it ever came easy, right?
We reported to training camp on Thursday, July 26 in Mankato, Minnesota. I rode down with Jarius Wright, a close friend of mine and also a wide receiver. He’s cool. We grew up together in Warren, Arkansas, we played together at the University of Arkansas and then we were both drafted in the same round of this year’s draft by the same team.
So far the practices have been tough. There are a lot of good players up here in the NFL, but I love the competition and know that I have a lot of work ahead of me. I’m looking to represent my family and all my fans the best way I can, and that’s by always playing hard and never giving up.
I plan on checking in with you guys regularly during camp, so don’t forget to come back and read about what’s going on with myself and the Vikings. You can also keep up by following me on Twitter. My handle is @TheGregChilds85.
That’s it for now. See ya’ll later!
