According the UFL Communications twitter account, @UFL_PR, have started the week by signing six players to their active roster. Some of those players are players that are returning to the Brahmas after their 2023 season including offensive lineman Kohl Levao and All-XFL linebacker Jordan Williams. They also include several players that were acquired by the Brahmas during the UFL player allocation process including defensive back Jordan Mosley and linebacker Nate Wieland from the 2023 Houston Roughnecks, and former Seattle Sea Dragons wide receiver Jordan Veasey.

Among the six players signed, one of those players comes to San Antonio after following a non-traditional path to the UFL. On Tuesday, UFL insider @JamesLarsenPFN, sent a tweet announcing that YouTube sensation Donald De La Haye has also signed with the San Antonio Brahmas.

Donald De La Haye’s Journey To The Brahmas

Kicker Donald De La Haye has taken an unusual path to the world of professional football, and he comes to the Brahmas with a YouTube channel that has 5.7 million subscribers. De La Haye started his YouTube channel while playing college football at the University of Central Florida. While at UCF, De La Haye was a kickoff specialist for the Golden Knights, and he started his successful YouTube channel.

De La Haye’s YouTube channel was so successful that the NCAA determined that he could not continue earning money for the channel if he wanted to continue to play for UCF. The YouTube made the decision to leave UCF after realizing that he could get more opportunities from the channel rather than finishing his career at UCF. The original purpose of De La Haye’s channel was to open doors for him to earn an opportunity with a team in the NFL.

While De La Haye has not received a contract with an NFL team, he did announce on his YouTube channel that he did sign with the San Antonio Brahmas. De La Haye is currently a co-owner of the Glacier Boyz in the FCF. He joins a Brahmas roster that already has a two kickers and it will be interesting to see if he is able to compete for a full-time position.
