I don't see any connection to the gridiron sport, but as a sort of generalization the Christmas Star or Star of Bethlehem is drawn with eight points. The design has grown popular in recent years as a borderline religious custom that is not directly religious- but gets the idea of the Supernatural across. a similar design is the also eight pointed Compass Rose. Do NOT confuse with the Maltese or Iron cross which also has eight points! The Christmas star is usually drawn with eight points. The heraldic star of Brabant is similar ( one was worn by Queen Marie of Romania). This was a heraldic decoration, not anything religious.
