Duluth’s C.J. Ham looking good in purple

20160812HamVikingsDuluth native C.J. Ham is the Minnesota Vikings leading rusher over the first two preseason contests. He has gained 60 yards on 20 attempts, including a game-winning touchdown against the Cincinnati Bengals in week one. He also has three receptions for 27 yards.

“It’s been a dream come true,” Ham told WCCO-TV. “Just having the opportunity to be in the NFL and be with the team I grew up watching, it’s a dream come true.”

Ham graduated from Denfeld High School in 2011 and played college ball at Augustana University.

The Vikings play the San Diego Chargers on Sunday, Aug. 28, then will trim their roster to 75 players on the active list. The final preseason game is Sept. 3, and the final cut to a 53-player roster must happen on or before Sept. 5.
