Odell Beckham Jr. is the one everyone knows. He is a football wide receiver who plays in the National Football League (NFL) for the Cleveland Browns after a rather controversial move from the New York Giants. Of course, thanks to his fame, other members of his family have also come to be known. One of such who is still finding his way around is Terron Beckham.
That said, Terron does not depend on his cousin to pull some fame to himself as he is a fitness model and social media star who has come to amass good followership for himself both on social media and offline. Apart from that, he is also good at football such that he almost made a career out of it.
Terron Beckham Biography (Wiki) and Age
It was on July 28, 1992, that Terron Beckham was born in Dallas, Texas. He was born the same year as his cousin, Odell Jr. who was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. While it is known that he was brought up in Texas, there is nothing much that is known about his family and siblings.
He started playing football since he was a young child. For his education, Terron went to Richardson High School in his hometown of Dallas but later transferred to Maryland. Next, he transferred again to Fort Meade High School where he completed his high school education.
After high school, he went to Stevenson University in Owings Mills, Maryland where he hoped to start a football program. The only problem was that being a Division III school, there was no scholarship for athletes and he had serious financial problems. More so, he had to pay his tuition all on his own.
Football is one thing that seems to be a family thing for them. Odell Jr is a star player in the sport, making three Pro Bowls from 2014 to 2016, two second-team All-Pro, NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, and PFWA All-Rookie Team among other achievements. More than that, his father Odell Beckham Sr. was also great when he was playing football in high school.
The excellence in the sport also extends to Terron who was an exceptional player in his high school days. More than that, Terron Beckham also played basketball. He revealed that all he was interested in was just on the field and so he did not pay any attention to any big schools.
When he later went to university, he had to stop playing football in order to work and raise money to pay for his education and housing because he was no more in the dorm. Next, he would go to Navarro College in Corsicana, Texas to bring back his hopes of playing professional football but nothing materialized.
Although he would later have opportunities to try to make something of his footballing career, nothing came out out it. Instead, he decided to turn his efforts to fitness training and modeling which is what he does. His job as a fitness model took a good turn after he went for Mr. Olympia Fitness in 2016.
Terron Beckham has a YouTube channel, Terron F. Beckham which has more than 300 thousand subscribers.

What is more, is that he is a model and fitness guru which are all the things that speak of a good body build. Terron Beckham has a height of 5 feet 11 inches (1.55m) and a body weight of 101.15 kg (223 pounds).
