Inky earned his undergraduate and master’s degrees from the University of Tennessee. A spectacularly gifted athlete with a prototypical NFL cornerback’s build, Inky’s football career and life were changed instantly with a life-altering injury suffered in a game against the Air Force Academy on September 6, 2006. Instead of a lucrative career in the NFL, Inky is now making even bigger hits across the nation as a much sought-after motivational speaker.Back to Instructors
