The Future Arrived Early: Odell Beckham Jr.

The Future Arrived Early: Odell Beckham Jr.

You can’t always judge a book by its cover.

Odell Beckham Jr.- he took the NFL by storm last year. Expectations were high for the 1st round draft pick…but “The Catch” propelled him to a certain level of stardom that I don’t think anyone had anticipated…not even Odell himself.

Then there was the Pro Bowl, Rookie of the Year, the Madden Cover…even a World Record for most one-handed catches in a minute.

My point is that there has been a lot happening for the 22-year-old, whom I am glad to call a great partner with Steiner Sports, but even with everything moving so quickly around him, Odell has stayed so incredibly humble.

That’s something I noticed when I had the opportunity to host a Q&A with him at Yankee Stadium through Steiner Sports and the Yankees-Steiner partnership:

The thing I love most about Odell is that he’s completely aware that there is so much still ahead and he has stayed so hungry. He craves the next success, not the one that has already passed him by.

Oh and just for fun, here's a giveaway for a signed photo from Odell and Steiner Sports:
