Similar to the old Leadership scholly's, form long ago. FA departmanets were granting them based on being a captian for the prospective students sport.
Now D3 has a better handle on that, and Thletics cannot be considered for FA, even in these cases.
Won't name, names because it was an innocent mistake.
