De La Haye is being forced to choose between college football and making YouTube videos. Despite the impressive accomplishment, all the NCAA sees is an “infringement” on its bylaws. Popular YouTubers earn money through their videos.

The UCF kickoff specialist announced in a YouTube video posted Sunday night that despite the NCAA's orders to discontinue producing videos for his personal YouTube channel, he will not be giving up on his passion.

"At the end of the day, I've decided I'm going to continue making my videos. I'm going to continue bringing love and positivity and joy and inspiration to all my viewers, all my followers, all my subscribers," De La Haye said in the video.

Super Mario Bros. strangely works in first-person augmented reality

  Super Mario Bros. strangely works in first-person augmented reality YouTube This HoloLens demo is weirdly good The original Super Mario Bros. doesn’t seem like a great fit for a first-person remake. A demo for the HoloLens, Microsoft’s augmented reality headset, proves that might not be the case; Super Mario Bros. actually works pretty well from a different perspective. Abhishek Singh created and recorded the AR experience, which is based on the first level of the game. It’s a little bit dizzying to watch him play through the demo; climbing up that flagpole at the very end of the level is an especially disorienting thing. For the most part, though, it’s a fascinating, bizarre recreation of a familiar experience.

Sophomore kicker Donald De La Haye said in a video he may have to decide whether to remain with the Knights football team or pursue his passion as a YouTube personality after meeting with the school's compliance office last week.

De La Haye was called into the compliance department and told that he cannot make money off of his YouTube videos. It’s probably safe to say the mysterious guy shutting him down could represent the NCAA .

De La Haye's YouTube channel, which currently has over 64,000 subscribers, landed him in a sticky situation after it was ruled that the involvement of advertisers represents a violation of NCAA rules.

De La Haye called the conundrum "the hardest choice in my whole entire life," when faced with the ultimatum of choosing NCAA football or following his passion for filmmaking.

"I'm still waiting to hear from the NCAA and people at compliance and all the guys up there," De La Haye said. "Like I said, I feel like I'm on trial, kind of. I didn't do anything bad, just been chasing my dreams, being positive, being happy, spreading love, spreading joy, spreading entertainment."

The decision could effectively end De La Haye's football career with the Knights after two seasons should the NCAA rule against him.
