Each year, ten local individuals are inducted into the Hall of Fame for their achievements in athletics, media, coaching, sports administration, and officiating. Other honorees include Knoxville’s Most Outstanding Male and Female High School Athletes of the Year, the Chad Pennington Professional Athlete of the Year, the Pat Summitt Ignite Greatness Award Special Recognition, Thanks for the Memories Award and the Will Mckamey Sprit Award. Inductees to be announced.

Speaker: Inky Johnson

WHO IS INKY?
September 9, 2006. It started as a normal college football game in Neyland Stadium. If anything, the event was an afterthought, dropped into the schedule at the last minute.

For Inky Johnson, though, the game changed everything. A routine tackle turned into a life-threatening injury, and nothing has been normal for Inky ever since. Not with a paralyzed right arm. Not with daily pain. Not with constant physical challenges.

His dream had always been to play professional sports. You might think his injury would have destroyed his motivation and crushed his spirit. But that’s only because you don’t know Inky.
