DULUTH, MN — C.J. Ham is gearing up for his 4th NFL season, and before he reports to training camp, he’s giving back to the community where it all started for him.
Ham hosted his first-ever youth football camp Saturday afternoon at Lincoln Park Middle School.
The camp was sold out, as 275 athletes participated in various drills to improve their football skills.
Participants received a t-shirt and an autograph from the Vikings fullback.
Ham says he plans to make the camp a tradition for years to come.
“To be able to come back and share this moment with them is amazing,” Ham says. “It’s not just about football. It’s about giving back to the community, and this community is 100% all in with that.”
