Odell Beckham Jr. was born into a very talented family, the son of Heather Van Norman, an all-American sprinter, and Odell Beckham Sr., a former running back for Louisiana State University. Having athletes as parents helped him understand at a very early age what it really took to succeed. He joined New Orleans’s Isidore Newman School, where he engaged in basketball, track as well as football, in which he played as a wide receiver, cornerback, running back and quarterback, at all of which he succeeded. He caught 45 passes for 10 touchdowns and a total of 743 yards as a junior, and 50 catches for 19 touchdowns and a total of 1,010 yards as a senior. He was one of two players to achieve 1,000 receiving yards in just a season in the school’s history, earning himself a spot in the ‘Times Picayune 2011 Blue-Chip’ list. He was also ranked in the ‘Advocate’s Super Dozen’, and honors with the District 9-2A Offensive MVP.

Besides football, he also practiced track, following in the footsteps of his mother. He did well in jumping events and sprinting, standing out as a field athlete. He also played soccer, and considered David Beckham as his childhood idol. However, he concentrated most of his time on playing football while at Louisiana State University. This saw him gain his popularity, especially in 2013 when he was given the Paul Hornung Award,  presented every year to the best and most versatile player, all of which caught the eye of professional club scouts.

In the 2014 NFL Draft, he was selected as the twelfth player overall by the New York Giants, and signed a lucrative contract which would see him establish a significant net worth. He debuted in October 2014 against the Atlanta Falcons after missing games following a hamstring injury. In November, he had had an impressive 593 receiving yards – 90-plus in each of five games – setting a record inthe  NFL for the calendar month. He also succeeded in many games, breaking records by Randy Moss and Bill Gorman. In a final match against Philadelphia Eagles, he had a career high, reaching 185 receiving yards, so making history with the most yards by a rookie in a game. He eventually received 2014’s ‘Pro Football Writers NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year Award.’

On 7 January 2015, Odell  was selected to replace Calvin Johnson in the 2015 Pro Bowl because the star had suffered an injury, and in late January, he also received the ‘Offensive Rookie of the Year Award,’ by Associated Press. Three months later, he was voted to be featured in Madden NFL 16, defeating New England Patriots’ Rob Gronkowski and becoming the youngest player to ever grace Madden’s cover. He says that his dream and ultimate goal is to help his team, the New York Giants, become the winner of the NFC East and Super Bowl.

In the following season, he set another NFL record, reaching both 200 career receptions and 4,000 career receiving yards in the fewest number of games, plus having his first 100-reception season. The Giants also reached the NFL playoffs, the first for Odell of course, after the Giants 11-5 season record. Beckham was also again named to the Pro Bowl. Should he remain injury-free, there seems no reason why Odell will not have a sterling career, and significantly boost his net worth in the process.

In his personal life, Odell Beckham Jr. is not married, but reports surfaced that he began dating model and actress Amber Rose in September 2015. The two were reportedly seen together in New York before the start of the season.
