Early life and education
Deestroying spent the first seven years of his life in Costa Rica before the family moved to the US and finally settled in Port St. Lucie, Florida – his father found a job in a taxi company, while his mother worked as a cleaner.

In 2015, Deestroying began playing as a kickoff specialist for his college team, but in 2017 he was ordered by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) to demonetize his YouTube channel if he wanted to continue playing college football – this would have made it impossible for Deestroying to monetize the network while also giving him the option to delete his entire channel – it is common knowledge that in most US states it is illegal for NCAA athletes to monetize their face on the internet to show. Deestroying decided to continue his channelbut then lost his scholarship and was kicked off the team – he sued his university in July 2018 and won in November of the same year when he was allowed to graduate.
Deestroying then asked National Football League (NFL) teams to have him play for them in numerous of his YouTube videos, and on May 19, 2019, he signed a contract with the Toronto Argonauts who compete in the Canadian Football League – the signing helped the Argonauts’ Instagram page gain 15,000 new followers.
