A native of Southern California, McBroom was a heralded three-sport varsity athlete in basketball, baseball and football at Campbell Hall High School in Studio City, CA, helping lead the Vikings to their 3rd State title in four years with backcourt mate and future NBA star Jrue Holiday . He then starred in the backcourt for the Division 1 Eastern Washington University Eagles before embarking on a successful career as a YouTube creator.

Since retiring in 2018, Young has used boxing training to stay in shape, having recently increased his training ahead of his debut. Young starred for the Los Angeles Lakers from 2013-2017.
