I recognize the creative style from some ads, and I assume it's tracking. Can you look at this and let me know how he did this?

There are a variety of techniques used, one of which is motion tracking. Some of it's good ol' keyframed animation, too. It just depends on what's easiest & fastest.

And planning out what you're going to do before you shoot.

And running tests: it's never good to take it as an article of faith that the software will perform as you HOPE when a delivery date is staring you in the face.

Thanks for responding, Dave.

It's been so long since I've tracked anything, and the last time was using Mocha. I recall having a tough time with rapid movements. His tracking looks so fluid and effortless. But then too, AE CS6 and up has camera tracking now, so maybe I'm giving too much credit. However, I think it's a good show of creativity for a teenager. Makes this old lady want to get back into live action tracking :)

[Lillian Young] "camera tracking"

As the name implies a camera tracker tracks how the camera moves so you can place stuff moving with the camera. You'll need point or planar tracking for tracking objects in the shot.
