Aquinas senior Johnny Agar has been featured in a national Under Armour campaign starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson.

Born with cerebral palsy, Johnny appears in an international commercial and film series debuting this week from Under Armour and New York advertising agency Droga5, as part of a wider campaign about defying the odds through willpower.

Now working with Under Armour, Johnny joins several world-class athletes with films in the activewear brand’s “Will Finds a Way” campaign. The campaign begins with a launch anthem, featuring Dwayne Johnson introducing each athlete’s unique story of overcoming obstacles with sheer willpower. Each following film will explore an individual athlete’s story in depth.

Johnny is the vice president of the Aquinas Sports Management Club and an athletic ambassador for the Cerebral Palsy Foundation. He competes in triathlons, Ironman races and more with his father, Jeff and has earned appearances on local & national news and ESPN’s E:60. 

On April 28th, Johnny and Jeff will be racing at the Memorial Hermann Ironman Texas North American Championship! It's the first time they have allowed a Physically-Challenged team to compete in the 140.6 mile course.
