Odell Beckham Jr. became an instant Internet sensation with his one-handed wonder catch against the Dallas Cowboys in November. Brad commended the skill of Odell saying “I’m impressed when these guys catch anything, especially when they run across the middle with guys coming to smash you. I don’t think people understand how big the guys are that play NFL.”

Beckham Jr was put to the test in goal, trying to catch a different kind of football than the one that he is used to catching. His leaping one-handed catches are not limited solely to gridiron, it seems.

Beckham Jr says “Usually one-hand catches are reactive”. Perhaps Brad’s 310 Under Armour goalkeeping glove can give Beckham the edge in the new season.

Brad Friedel was joined by DeAndre Yedlin and Emmanuel Adebayor to put top NFL stars Odell Beckham Jr. (NY Giants), Lawrence Okoye (San Francisco 49ers), Menelik Watson (Oakland Raiders) and Eric Wood (Buffalo Bills), through their paces at Hotspur Way.
