YouTuber Deestroying Makes Pro Football Debut for UFL’s San Antonio Brahmas

Donald De La Haye, better known as YouTuber Deestroying, recently stepped onto the professional football field, making his debut as a placekicker for the San Antonio Brahmas in the United Football League (UFL). This remarkable journey from YouTube stardom to the gridiron is a testament to his resilience and passion for the game.

De La Haye’s path to professional football was anything but conventional. As a college football player at the University of Central Florida (UCF), he faced a unique challenge. The NCAA prohibited him from profiting from his popular YouTube channel, which had garnered 5.8 million followers. Despite his talent on the field, this conflict led to his dismissal from the UCF team.

Undeterred, De La Haye continued to pursue his passion for football. In 2019, the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League (CFL) signed him, but he never played in a regular-season game. His dreams of playing professional football remained unfulfilled—until now.

Deestroying’s  UFL Opportunity

The San Antonio Brahmas recognized Deestroying’s potential and offered him a chance to prove himself in the UFL. On March 31, 2024, he stepped onto the field as a placekicker, ready to showcase his skills. His infectious enthusiasm was evident as he exclaimed, “I’m a real football player! Let’s go!” during his debut game.

De La Haye’s journey took an unexpected turn when he secured a spot on the Brahmas’ roster, beating out former NFL kicker Matt Ammendola for the position. With each kick, he demonstrated that his YouTube fame wasn’t just about vlogs and challenges—it was also about raw talent and determination.
