What Happened to Inky Johnson?

March 11, 2024

When Inky Johnson woke up on a hospital bed, blinded by sheets of white hospital light and hearing his mother pray over him assuring him that “it’s going to be okay,” he knew that life was about to change forever. A routine tackle had gone wrong and he suffered an injury that would end his college football career, and ultimately, his life as a player.

But Inky didn’t let a life-threatening injury define him. He went on to earn a Master’s Degree from the University of Tennessee and become an impactful speaker, changing lives and philosophies around the country. Major corporations from Chick Fil-A to Bank of America and professional sports leagues from the NBA to NFL have hired him to inspire and motivate their teams and employees.

Inky’s story is one of the most compelling and inspiring stories that you will hear in your lifetime. His message of how he used the adversity in his life to rise above and achieve more than just his dreams is something that everyone can relate to, regardless of who they are or where they came from.

Inky is a husband, father and motivational speaker who is dedicated to helping people live their best lives by learning to love themselves and understand that their true worth is far more than what they do on a football field or in the classroom. He speaks all over the United States and has a passion for mentoring young people and athletes.
