Former Denfeld Alum C.J. Ham Will Become Starting Full back For The Minnesota Vikings
According to the Minnesota Vikings official website. C.J. Ham, of Duluth, will take over the fullback position full time. During the rookie mini-camp, Ham lined up in front of rookie Dalvin Cook. Ham was impressive at the running back position last year but was lining up more and more in the full back position. With the Vikings letting last year's fullback go, Ham was shoe in for the position.
C.J. Ham was on the practice squad last year with the hopes to land on the regular roster, he was added in the final two games but didn't see any action. This year, Duluth native C.J. Ham said he was going to work harder to make the regular roster, and was rewarded with the announcement that he would take over the fullback spot. He won't see many carries but will lead the way for those that will.
