That play earned $110k for Alabama's general scholarship fund as part of a Pontiac promotion, but when Prothro wen to the university three years later to get photos of The Catch for his book, he was told they would cost him $10 each. He passed.
Seems The Catch came with a catch.
Prothro was on full football scholarship at Alabama and after he got hurt, the university continued to pay for his education until he graduated in 2008. The university also has paid for his 10 surgeries since his injury, althought he said a school trainer told him the 10th surgery would the last on the school's dime.
