After high school, he enrolled at Central Michigan University. Sometime after that, he moved on to Saint Louis University and finally to Eastern Washington University, where he graduated with a degree in communications, a perfect course of study when you consider his YouTube career.
Austin’s reasons for having to attend up to 3 different higher institutions before graduating had a lot to do with his sporting interests. He left Central Michigan because the coach who recruited him got fired. His time at Saint Louis was also short-lived because the coach who brought him to the school died soon after his arrival, and Austin did not agree with the tactics of his replacement. His final port of call was Eastern Washington, where he allegedly graduated with a 3.9 GPA.

Austin McBroom Excelled in Sporting Activities in High School
As a youngster, Austin McBroom was quite athletic. He showcased those athletic abilities during his time as a high school student. Many of his followers are aware of the fact that he played basketball, but not everyone is aware of the fact that it was not the only sport he excelled at.
As a student at Campbell Hall, McBroom was also a member of the football and baseball teams. He, however, chose to focus his energies and time on basketball because it was a sport he considered his all-time love and with which he could never get bored, as opposed to baseball, which he considered too slow, and football, which he considered too violent because he hated being tackled.
He would later go on to play basketball at the three universities he attended and all his coaches had good things to say about him. His excellent stats at those institutions all backed up his coaches’ assertions that he was an exceptional player.
Austin McBroom was 24 Years Old When He Started His YouTube Channel
For some reason, Austin McBroom did not quite go on to become the big basketball star that many of his acquaintances and family members thought he would become, but he found another passion through the social media app known as YouTube.
He was only 24 years old when he launched his now very popular YouTube channel known as The ACE Family channel. The channel has grown to the point where it has over 18 million subscribers.
The ACE in the channel’s name is a fusion of the first letters in the first names of the founding family members of the channel. The A stands for Austin, the C stands for his wife Catherine, while the E stands for the couple’s first child Elle, who was born just before the channel was launched.
Austin Mcbroom’s communications degree has come in handy in his career as a YouTuber because while the input of other members of the family is more than welcome, Austin is the one who has the responsibility of editing and deciding which content goes up on the channel.
It is important to note that the content of the channel was restricted to music videos in the early years before Austin switched to V-logging. These days, there is a variety of content on the channel, which includes Q & A sessions, pranks, and lifestyle-related posts, among many other interesting posts.
Austin McBroom Got Married At The Age of 25
Austin McBroom has been happily married since 2017. He has been married to Catherine Paiz born Dolores Catherine Johnston Paiz. The couple met for the first time at a party in 2015. Austin was smitten from the onset, but it was not the same for his wife Catherine.
According to Catherine, her previous dating experiences had left her with the impression that the relationship will not last as long as it has or is going to. Austin, however, was persistent, and they soon began dating exclusively in 2015. About 2 years later, in August 2017, Austin staged an elaborate proposal that was shown on their channel.
For 2 people whose lives are constantly in view of the public as a result of their social media exploits, Austin and Catherine hid the wedding event, which was said to be quite intimate, behind her parents’ backyard. The only witnesses to the event were Austin’s grandmother and Catherine’s brother.
Austin and Catherine have three children together, 2 girls and a boy. Their first daughter, Elle Lively McBroom, was born on May 28, 2016. Their second child, also a daughter named Alaia Marie McBroom, was born on October 17, 2018. The youngest member of the ACE family at the moment is a son named Steel McBroom.

How Tall is Austin McBroom?
Austin McBroom is reportedly 6 feet (183 cm or 1.83 m) tall and weighs 77 kg (170 lbs). By contrast, his younger brother Landon McBroom is only 5 feet 9 inches (179 cm or 1.79 m) tall.

With the way things are going for them, that upward trend is sure to continue as the years go by.
