Where are they now?

Phil Robertson was an all-state, three-sport high school athlete in Louisiana before a college athletics scholarship allowed him to attend and play quarterback for Louisiana Tech University. For two seasons, Robertson started ahead of future Pro Football Hall of Famer Terry Bradshaw. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in physical education and master’s in education. He spent several years as a teacher before inventing a duck call and founding a successful business serving the hunting industry. Now, Robertson stars on A&E’s “Duck Dynasty.”

What people are saying

“Student-athletes are successful in the classroom and in competition because of the university-wide emphasis on balancing academics and athletic success. They learn to set priorities so they can balance the time demands. They seem to have an innate drive to be successful in all of their endeavors and leave campus prepared to excel  in life.”

- Christine Hailey, College of Engineering Dean and Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Utah State University
