SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Moments after the San Francisco 49ers used a fifth-round draft choice on linebacker Dre Greenlaw, a grateful father took to Twitter to thank Greenlaw for protecting his daughter at a fraternity party in 2015.
Gerry Daly posted a series of tweets Saturday afternoon recounting the story of how his daughter Meghan had been at the same party as Greenlaw when the two were freshmen at the University of Arkansas.
According to Greenlaw, he went to a party at Sigma Chi fraternity with some friends.
While there, he caught up with Meghan, whom he previously knew at Fayetteville High in Arkansas.
A couple of days later, Greenlaw got a call from Meghan, who thanked him again and congratulated him on getting drafted.
