Iowa WR tops Odell Beckham's world record for one-handed catches (VIDEO)

After Odell Beckham Jr. teamed up this week with New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees to set a Guinness World Record for most one-handed catches in a minute —  making 33 grabs in the allotted time — the mark has already been broken.

Make that obliterated.

Just days after OBJ set the once obscure record in Scottsdale, Ariz., Iowa receiver Tevaun Smith decided to give it a shot, and video shows he managed to catch an impressive 41 balls in one minute on Friday. Since there were no Guinness officials around to verify the record, it looks like the Iowa junior won't be getting one of those snazzy certificates to hang on his wall.

Smith — who caught 43 passes for 596 yards last season for the Hawkeyes — still has a long way to go before he is in Beckham's class but, at least he got his name on the map — if not in the books.

And he'll always have the video.
