EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (WGEM) -- James Vandenberg has proven himself at every stop of his career.
Six years ago he became the most prolific quarterback in the history of Iowa high school football while leading Keokuk to the state championship.
Vandenberg then chose the University of Iowa where he capped off his junior season with 25 touchdowns.
Now, Vandenberg is getting his chance in the National Football League.
Vandenberg participated in his first rookie mini-camp with the Minnesota Vikings on Friday morning.
He's one of five signal callers in contention for three spots on the active roster which includes the incumbent starter Christian Ponder and former Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel.
Vandenberg is one of 16 undrafted rookies at mini-camp which runs today thru Sunday.
