There is a lot of talk about Phil Robertson playing football, and much of it is absolutely true! In college at Louisiana Tech University, he played quarterback and Terry Bradshaw was his backup. He also had the opportunity to play professionally, as he was entertaining the possibility of playing for the Washington Redskins!
During that pivotal time in his life, he decided that the role of a professional football player was not for him. He stepped back, gave Terry Bradshaw the reins and pursued his career as a professional duck hunter and businessman. What a remarkable individual!
