C. J. Ham Paying Tribute To Denfeld High School At Pro Bowl
C.J. Ham, an alumnus of Duluth Denfeld High School, sent pictures to the team via Facebook.
Ham was added to the Pro Bowl team for the NFC. Having one of the best years of his career, he was added earlier this week as an alternate in place of 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, for San Francisco. Because Kyle is in the Super Bowl and was hurt earlier this year and had said he may not play if his team didn't make it.
According to the Minnesota Vikings website, Ham was given a chance to try out, then signed in 2016 to the practice squad. He converted to fullback and was named special teams player of the year for the team in 2018. The past year he added more yards per carry and scored his first touchdown.
The Vikings website also added that it's interesting this was the year for Ham. He helped block for Cook, who racked up 1,135 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns in his third pro season and is also on the Pro Bowl team for the first time.
