Former University of Tennessee football player Inquoris "Inky" Johnson, is coming to Rhea and Roane Counties on Saturday, Dec. 15 and Sunday, Dec. 16. On Saturday, Dec. 15, from 11:00-1:00 p.m., Johnson will appear with Ken Turner of Ken Turner Ministries and High Impact Teens of Dayton, at First Baptist Church of Kingston with the Angel Tree Organization participating in a Christmas party for 57 youth who have a parent in prison. Each young person has been sponsored to receive a Christmas gift and attend this special Christmas party. On Sunday, Dec. 16, Inky Johnson will speak at First United Methodist Church in Dayton at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. Johnson appeared to have a promising career with the Vols that seemed to point towards the possibility of being drafted into the National Football League. However, an injury on the field during his junior year in 2006 left his right arm completely paralyzed, ending all hopes of professional play. According to Johnson, this was God's plan for his life. Instead of an NFL career, last October Johnson become the sports and health coordinator for JustLead, the flagship program of Emerald Youth Foundation, a nonprofit ministry for youth in inner-city Knoxville. Inky's website is www.inkyjohnson.com. Inky has chosen to be considered an official "partner" in Turner's youth outreach ministry and they are doing several events together in 2013.
