The oldest son of of Korie and Willie Robertson, seventeen-year-old John Luke, strives to be all the Robertson family name represents. During his high school years he has proven himself as a leader in his church youth group and his school. At school, he has served as president of his class the past two years, is on the track team and plays for the tennis team. His summers are busy with mission trips and working at a Christian youth camp. He takes after his papaw Phil Robertson in many ways, two of which are his love of the outdoors and his love for teaching others about Jesus.
Sadie Robertson is well known for her dimples and engaging smile, but there is more to her than those two traits. She has the quick wit and humor of her dad, Willie, the southern grace of her mother, Korie, and the athletic ability of her papaw, Phil. She plays basketball, throws the javelin (currently sixth in the state) and plays tennis. She spends her summers on mission trips and working at a Christian youth camp. Her message to her peers is to let your light shine in all you do. She is fifteen-years-old.
