Odell Cornelious Beckham Jr. was born on November 5th, 1992, in Baton Rouge Louisiana, USA. His father, Odell Beckham Sr., mother, Heather Van Norman, and stepfather, Derek Mills, were both accomplished athletes. He was the oldest in the family, with a younger sister, Jasmine, and brother, Kordell.
Although he was focused on being a good student, Odell was more interested in the world of sports and spent a lot of time on the local basketball courts. This was quite logical given the close association his parents had sports.
In many interviews, Odell mentioned that his parents brought him up as a true athlete.
Odell’s football career started as soon as he arrived at college. He got into Louisiana State University, and he made it onto the football team as a freshman. His talent shined on the field, and he ended the first season with 2 touchdowns and 41 receptions and got picked for the All-SEC football team.
Everyone remembered his performance in 2013. This was when the wide receiver dynamic duo of Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry left fans of LSU and America as a whole speechless. The same year, he earned himself the Paul Hornung Award as the best player in the major college football league.
Odell got drafted by New York Giants right out of college. Due to a hamstring injury, he missed the first 4 matches in the new season. But he got the opportunity to show his skills against Atlanta Falcons which he did with one touchdown and four receptions.
His consistent performance on the field earned him a celebrity status among NFL fans.
