    Not all teams have stars (or tomahawks, buckeyes, bones ect) but if they do, it is a reward for something they did. Some teams but not all everyone on the team will get one for a win, then depending on what postion a player plays. A running back would get 1 for a touchdown, 1 for 100 yards rush. A lineman may get one if a back run in a TD, or a "pancake" or not allowing a sack. a Linebacker would get o1 for a sack, 1 for however many tackles ect. Georgia gives out 2 types of "bones" White for on the field and black for in the Class room. If a player is on the Dean's list, he get a black bone.
