Phil Robertson is the 76-year-old son of Merritt and James Robertson. He attended Louisiana Tech University and was starting quarterback for the Bulldogs. 

In high school, Phil was a standout athlete and was all-state in football, baseball, and track, which allowed him to attend the university on a full ride in the 1960s. He graduated with a master’s degree in education and worked as an educator for several years. 

While teaching, Phil became a commercial fisherman and a skilled outdoorsman. Eventually, after becoming dissatisfied with “duck calls” as they were, he started to work on a device that could mimic the noises of a duck to exact detail.

His ingenuity and DIY attitude are the impetus for what has now become the Duck Commander Company, founded in 1973. Today, his company is worth several million dollars and is run by his son, Willie Robertson. 

Thanks to the controversial yet entertaining Duck Dynasty reality show on A&E, the company grew exponentially and remains exceedingly popular.
