Odell Beckham Jr. played NFL superhero to a young Texas boy suffering from a rare form of cancer. Catch the good feels inside…
Odell Beckham Jr. is known for his antics on-and-off the field. And this time, he’s making headlines for his good deeds.
Before the NFL’s training camp kicks off, the NY Giants wide receiver jetted to Texas to make a 9-year-old cancer patient’s dream come true. And the power of social media made it happen.
Danny Richburg, father of Giants offensive lineman Weston Richburg, hit up OBJ via Twitter, requesting him to come to Amarillo, TX to meet 9-year-old Jayro Ponce, who’s battling a rare form of cancer.
