NEW PODCAST: Inky Johnson, former Tennessee defensive back, motivational speaker

THIS IS EPISODE 112 OF THE SPORTS SPECTRUM PODCAST

 

Inky Johnson is a motivational speaker, author and former college football player with the University of Tennessee.

With a dream of playing in the NFL, Johnson rose from a life of poverty and drugs in the ghetto of Atlanta to play college football with the Volunteers. In 2006, his dream was shattered when he suffered a life-altering injury on the football field that would take him from starting defensive back to sitting in a hospital wondering if his life would ever be the same.

Today, Johnson travels the country sharing his story and encouraging others as a motivational speaker. He’s a mentor to many athletes and teams both in college and professional sports.

On this episode of the podcast, Johnson shares his journey to Tennessee, how the worst day of his life actually turned into the best day of his life, why it’s important to have a “relationship” with God, why there’s a lesson and blessing in everything that happens for us, and how he’s seen people impacted by the message of his story.
