Inquoris "Inky" Johnson was playing in a normal college football game in Neyland Stadium on September 9, 2006. He played cornerback for the Tennessee Volunteers and the game was against Air Force Academy.
What started as a typical game ended with a life-threating injury for Inky, and nothing has been "typical" for him ever since. He faces daily pain and constant physical challenges due to his paralyzed right arm, the result of that football game more than a decade ago.
Who is Inky Johnson? He's the survivor of an underprivileged past, a refugee of violence and poverty. He is a man who looks into the face of defeat and overcomes. He has relentless determination, which he loves to impart to others through his powerful and dramatic story.
Through his walk and his talk, Inky embodies and imparts a truly inspirational message. All who hear him benefit from the raw energy of his charismatic speaking, as he inspires audiences to embrace the challenges of life and overcome them with power and pride.
