FLA.» UCF kicker Don­ald De OR­LANDO,

La Haye made the de­ci­sion to give up foot­ball rather than give up mak­ing advertising money from videos on YouTube that he pro­duced.

The univer­sity re­leased a state­ment Mon­day say­ing De La Haye did not ac­cept the con­di­tions of a waiver re­ceived from the NCAA and has been ruled in­el­i­gi­ble to com­pete. The state­ment said UCF of­fi­cials pe­ti­tioned the NCAA on De La Haye’s be­half and got the gov­ern­ing body to al­low De La Haye to con­tinue to make money from videos that did not de­pict him as a stu­dent-ath­lete. But the YouTube videos that de­pict him as a stu­dent-ath­lete would have to broad­cast on a non­mon­e­tized ac­count.

UCF spokesman Andy See­ley said he is un­cer­tain what part of the agree­ment De La Haye did not agree with. De La Haye, who is from Port St. Lucie, Fla., could not be reached for com­ment.

The univer­sity be­gan in­ves­ti­gat­ing in the spring whether or not the videos, and the fact De La Haye made money from them, were an NCAA vi­o­la­tion. NCAA rules pro­hibit stu­dent-ath­letes from mak­ing money off of their images.

De La Haye, a mar­ket­ing ma­jor, made sev­eral videos, some de­pict­ing his ev­ery­day rou­tine and some that dealt with his ex­pe­ri­ences on the foot­ball team. Some videos had more than 50,000 views, though it is un­clear how much De La Haye made.
