From Newport News to JMU to NFL

Khalid Abdullah, a Newport News native and JMU alum, is all set to show how good a running back he is at NY Giants training camp.

Khalid Abdullah was a star at Heritage High in Newport News. He was an even bigger star at JMU. Now he is hoping to shine even brighter in the NFL.

Abdullah was an All-American running back for JMU and led the nation in rushing yards and touchdowns last season.

He made the preseason roster for the New York Giants as an unsigned free agent.

We caught up with Abdullah at the Hampton Roads Youth Foundation sports camp this past weekend. He is good to go for camp which starts on July 28.
