When it came to selecting a guest speaker for their annual banquet, it appears officials at Boyd Christian School made the right call – a duck call that is.Phil Robertson from the A&E Network hit TV show “Duck Dynasty” will be the featured speaker at Boyd’s banquet scheduled for Friday, March 1 at McMinnville Civic Center.“The response has been overwhelming,” said Bo Rivers, a member of Boyd’s board of directors who spearheaded the effort to get Phil. “Of all the people we’ve ever gotten for our banquet, Phil has generated the most excitement.”Considering Boyd’s banquet has featured Tennessee icons such as Peyton Manning, Eddie George, and Pat Summitt, that puts Phil atop some pretty high company. Rivers said Phil will be joined by his wife, Kay, who also appears on the show.Despite his long beard and current appearance, Phil was a sports star in college.
