UCF kicker ruled ineligible over YouTube channel

Kicker Donald De La Haye has been deemed ineligible as an NCAA player because of the money he has made off some of his YouTube videos.

After trying to fight for his right to vlog behind closed doors, UCF kicker Donald De La Haye took his clash with the NCAA public in June, blasting the governing body of college athletics for threatening to revoke his eligibility if he continued to create and post sports videos to his personal YouTube page. The waiver was granted, saying De La Haye could still make money on the videos as long as he didn't reference his status as a student athlete or depict his football skills.

On Monday, De La Haye informed the University of Central Florida that he would not accept these conditions.

The NCAA also released a statement about the situation on Twitter.

The highlight of our working relationship was a trip to attend her film's screening at the San Francisco Film Festival. His movies, his voice, his talent had made her a essential personality of the French cinema of the past sixty years.

After the national office received the waiver request from UCF July 12, that process was used to confirm that De La Haye could continue to profit from any of his video activity as long as it was not based on his athletics reputation, prestige or ability.

De La Haye played in 23 games during his first two seasons with the program, serving as the team's kickoff specialist.

De La Haye said in his video Monday he plans on making videos as a career now.

As for De La Haye, he says he will continue with the videos he loves."I feel like I will be great at whatever I set my mind to and I'm passionate about this video stuff", said De La Haye. "I just didn't think it was fair what they wanted me to do, so I told them I wouldn't do it". That left UCF no choice but to declare the kicker ineligible. The channel has more than 90,000 subscribers. De La Haye has produced and starred in dozens of his own videos, some of which have garnered hundreds of thousands of views.

VPN providers are now required to have approval from Beijing before they can provide their services to users in the country. ExpressVPN said that it was disappointed to see Apple "aiding China's censorship agents", and condemned the removals.

Clearly De La Haye understood what was at stake and chose YouTube over football. He never wanted to stop playing football, but he didn't want to stop making YouTube videos either. None of these athletes committed crimes - they were guilty only of earning fair market value for their work. I worked so hard for it.

"I may seem unbothered right now or whatever it may seem like, I'm definitely torn apart inside", he said. Athletes have challenged this stance in the past. No more college football.

De La Haye could sue the NCAA in an effort to restore his eligibility, according to the Sentinel. Social media is the next frontier for student athletes to make money on their own terms.

He's now the new poster boy for NCAA reform. YouTube, similarly to Instagram, has both the fortune and misfortune of being a permanent visual diary of sorts, available for anyone to see and scrutinize. NCAA rules prohibit student-athletes from making money off of their images.
