C.J. Ham is currently the starting fullback for the Minnesota Vikings. In college at Augustana University (Division II), he helped his team advance to the NCAA playoffs, and led the Northern Sun Conference in rushing yards and touchdowns.
In 2016, he was signed as an undrafted free-agent by the Vikings and after being cut, was signed to the team's practice squad just before the start of the season. In December of 2016, Ham would sign to the active roster and make his NFL debut.
Three seasons later, in 2019, Ham made the Pro Bowl and signed a contract extension in early 2020.
Today on the podcast, C.J. Ham shares about the roller coaster of emotions he's been dealing with the past 15 months, losing his mother to cancer, his wife giving birth to their third child, playing through an NFL season during Covid-19 and trusting in the Lord through it all.
