Duck Dynasty Star Phil Robertson’s First College Football Game (Video)
Long before Phil Robertson started making duck calls he played football and he played very well. He was the starting quarterback at Louisiana Tech, ahead of NFL Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw.
Here is an ESPN article about how good he was at football.

ESPN.com has recently conducted a five month investigation of a Indiana AAU coach and digs up some interesting information and the answer to why DeAndre Liggins was suspended at the beginning of the 2009-10 season. Mike Barnett, the founder of Indiana Elite and Liggin’s, a junior guard at Kentucky who will be entering this years NBA Draft, were very close with each other during his high school career. Barnett took Liggin’s under his wing as he was from a very bad area of Chicago, he would pay for Liggin’s to attend campus visits to other programs like Kansas and Illinois, gave him a part time job at his printing shop and at the time of DeAndre’s leg injury, rumor has it that Barnett tried to adopt him!! I’ll let you read the story for yourself as it is a good one and so you can decide which side your on, but I can tell you that when the NCAA found out about this, they stepped in and handed down the ruling that Liggin’s to be suspended for the first 9 games of the seasons.
Here is a excerpt from the article: At one point, with Liggins unable to play for Indiana Elite because of a serious foot injury, Barnett is alleged to have discussed adopting the Chicago teenager, which sources said was not solely a benevolent gesture but one designed to expand his influence over Liggins. Barnett loudly denies it, but seven people — among them Liggins, his mother and an NCAA official — told ESPN.com that he indeed had proposed the idea.
