For all of you Duck Dynasty fans out there like me… Did you know Papaw Phil Roberston has a secret past? And it’s definitely a pretty cool one! He used to play football for Louisiana Tech, starting ahead of a guy you might have heard of… Terry Bradshaw!  Check out this picture of a younger, and clean shaven Phil in his uniform.  According to Sports Illustrated, Phil turned down an offer from the Washington Redskins his junior year to concentrate on what else other than DUCK HUNTING! Lucky for him, that concentration paid off in the way of a multi-million dollar duck hunting business and of course the hit A&E show, Duck Dynasty.  Pretty cool stuff.  Terry Bradshaw actually mentioned Phil in his book and said he would often show up to football practices at Louisiana Tech “directly from the woods, squirrel tails hanging out of his pockets, duck feathers on his clothes.”  Phil was quoted saying that while throwing passes down the sidelines was a thrilling part of his life he would much rather be in the woods surrounded by ducks… Talk about pursuing your dream!
