Rob Gronkowski returned to his old stomping grounds to do something he’s been known for over the years: standing out among the pack by being creative.
And while Gronk has developed a reputation for setting records at the NFL level — labeled by some to be the greatest tight end of all-time — he’s been fairly quiet since leaving the Patriots, aside from his two-touchdown performance in Super Bowl LV.
He did make waves at University of Arizona this past weekend, hitting the football field where he began to grow his legacy. This time, however, he wasn’t practicing or playing in a game. Instead, he was setting a world record for catching a “pass” from a helicopter, which was hovering 600 feet above him, on the day of the U of A spring game.
He also did this while there.
Gronk will always be a legend among Wildcats players and fans.
