The slow talking “happy, happy, happy” redneck star of A&E's “Duck Dynasty” has a master's degree in education. According to a report on March 1 from The Hollywood Gossip, Phil Robertson attended Louisiana Tech where he also played football.
“It is hard to imagine Phil Robertson with a master's degree,” Lisa Simmons, from Oklahoma City, said. “If you can get past his beard and drawl and really listen to him, you can tell he is a very bright and intelligent man. Too many people judge a book by it's cover. You can't do that with Phil [Robertson].”
While earning his degrees, Phil Robertson also played a little football. He was the starting quarterback. Phil Robertson could have easily played for the NFL, but gave up football for hunting and fishing. Curious as to how good he was? Terry Bradshaw, the NFL great, was the back-up quarterback for Phil Robertson.
Although it may appear the Phil Robertson doesn't use his master's degree in education, but that may not be entirely true. He must have used his education when creating Duck Commander into a million dollar empire.
