MINNEAPOLIS-- A Duluth Denfeld High School graduate is set to make his debut in the NFL's Pro Bowl.
The Star Tribune reports that C.J. Ham, a fullback for the Minnesota Vikings, will be on the roster for this year's Pro Bowl, according to a tweet from his agency.
This comes after the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Green Bay Packers in Sunday's NFC Championship game.
The previous fullback starter was 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk. Because the 49ers won Sunday, he'll be preparing for the Super Bowl in Miami and will be unable to play. Ham was added to the roster as an alternate.
Ham will join defensive end Danielle Hunter, safety Harrison Smith and running back Dalvin Cook as the Vikings' representatives in the Pro Bowl.
Ham played a career-high 359 snaps this past season for the Vikings and according to a Sports Illustrated article, Ham also caught 17 passes for 149 yards, including his second career touchdown while finished second to Juszczyk in offensive snaps for fullbacks.
The Pro Bowl is set for 2 p.m. Sunday in Orlando.
Ham was a second Pro Bowl alternate after the 2018 season.
