Iowa WR Tevaun Smith Breaks Odell Beckham Jr.'s One-Handed Catch Record

New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. made some spectacular one-handed receptions as a rookie, and the LSU product recently grabbed 33 one-handed catches in 60 seconds to set a new record. The previous mark in the Guinness World Records was just 10.
