The founder of Duck Commander, a company which manufactures duck calls, was the quarterback for the football team in Ruston, until his desire for the gridiron left him. His backup was none other than future NFL Hall of Fame QB Terry Bradshaw, in 1966.
Here he is discussing things with his former teammate and the current Fox Sports NFL analyst:
It isn’t hard to understand why someone would fall out of love with football when they are the starter for a collegiate team that finishes 1-9, and throws only 4 touchdowns versus 18 interceptions. That isn’t a lot of fun. He would be supplanted by Bradshaw the following year, and he would leave the team in 1968, his final year of eligibility. It seems Robertson ended up landing on his feet, considering his family’s company makes $40 million in revenue each year, and has the highest-rated television show on cable TV.
Anyway, here are some hightlights (lowlights more like it) of Robertson facing Alabama in 1966:
