Odell Beckham Jr. Makes Insane One-Handed Grab With Non-Dominant Hand [VIDEO]
New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. made another insane one-handed catch for a touchdown on Sunday, but this one was with his off hand.
Beckham is right-handed, but that didn’t stop him from making this incredible grab with his left hand before stretching into the end zone against the Detroit Lions Sunday.

The New York Giants star has reportedly been training himself to be ambidextrous for some time now, Deadspin reports.
Last November, Kevin Clark, revealed “The Secret Left-Handed Life Of Odell Beckham” in a piece for the Wall Street Journal. Beckham has been using his non-dominant left hand for everyday simple tasks to help improve his ability to catch lefty on the field.
Beckham “started doing as many things as he possibly could left handed. Every day,” Clark wrote. “Anything I can do with my right hand, I’ve gotta do with my left,” Beckham told Clark.
Beckham began brushing his teeth, three times a day, with his left hand. He started swinging a baseball bat lefty and starting shooting basketball with his non-dominant hand as well–all to improve his ability to catch with it on the field.
Beckham credited his one-handed grab late in the Giants win Sunday to his left-handed training, citing some of his daily rituals that Clark drew attention to in his piece.
“It’s just hard for me to accept good,” Beckham said after the game Sunday. “I need it to be great, above that, legendary, and it’s got to be that way every single time.”
