  • Fun Faith Fact!: In 2015, Beckham held the world record for most one-handed catches made in a minute. He made 33, shattering the previous record of 10, but his record was bested by Andy Fantuz.

Odell Cornelious Beckham, Jr. grew up in Louisiana where he played wide receiver, quarterback, running back and cornerback for his high school football team. He received a number of scholarship offers from various universities including Ole Miss, Nebraska, Tulane and Tulsa, and he chose to accept Louisiana State University’s scholarship offer. As a freshman he started nine out of 14 games and continued to be a starter throughout college, but he forwent his senior season in order to enter the 2014 NFL Draft where he was chosen by the New York Giants. Despite missing training, the preseason and the first four games of the season due to an injury, Beckham went on to break multiple records as a rookie and was named the Offensive Rookie of the Year. He missed much of the 2017 season due to a fractured ankle, but signed a five year extension with the Giants in 2018.
