Ian Johnson (born September 25, 1985 in San Dimas, California) is a running back for the Minnesota Vikings and a former running back for Boise State.

He gained national recognition when he accumulated 240 rushing yards and five touchdowns in a game against Oregon State which was broadcast on ESPN. This game would prove very significant to the Broncos' hopes of "busting" the BCS; their 42-14 victory over Oregon State increased their credibility after the Beavers stunned then-#3 USC on October 28, 2006. On December 23, 2008 Johnson set the WAC record for rushing touchdowns at 58 with his touchdown against Texas Christian University (TCU) during the Poinsettia Bowl; the previous record of 57 was held by Marshall Faulk. The Broncos lost in the Poinsettia Bowl 16-17.

Johnson attended Damien High School (La Verne, California) and was named Inland Valley Offensive Player of the Year, L.A. Times All-San Gabriel Valley first team, San Gabriel Valley Tribune All-Area first team, Daily Bulletin Inland Valley All-Area Team, All-Sierra League MVP, and CIF Division II first-team all-league as a senior. Johnson was also a team captain and set Damien High School records in career rushing yards, season rushing yards (1,751 yards) and points scored (282). He also lettered in track where he was an All-Sierra League and All-CIF pick while competing in the 100-meters, 200-meters, and 4x100-meter relay. Johnson was best known off the field at Damein for his strange pre game ritual of dancing around and eating a banana including the peel to excite the team.
