Falling off an epic performance in Super Bowl LV, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski pulled off an incredible, record-breaking catch at his alma mater’s spring game recently.
Gronkowski, who played college football at the University of Arizona, was acquired to get the players in the team advertised up for the annual scrimmage, and that comprised of the previous All-Pro setting a Guinness World Record for “the highest altitude catch that’s ever been done in the world,” as indicated by Arizona head coach Jedd Fisch.
A football was more than 600 feet not yet decided in a helicopter that was circling around Arizona Stadium in Tucson. Gronkowski failed to pull in the initial two footballs that were dropped from the sky, however after he got the third ball, Arizona players and coaches approached Gronkowski in fervor and he spiked the football into the turf, which is the thing that he broadly does subsequent to scoring touchdowns.
“Every time you step on the field, you’ve got to raise the bar to another level, baby,” Gronkowski said to the players afterward. “And I just raised that bar to this level.”
Gronkowski, who is viewed as the “top alum” in program history, brandished an Arizona helmet and his old No. 48 jersey that he wore during his college days.
The four-time Super Bowl champion was drafted in the second round of the 2010 NFL Draft by the New England Patriots. He spent nine seasons in New England prior to retiring from football in 2018. Gronkowski made a NFL rebound in 2020, joined Tom Brady and the Buccaneers, and led the team to their first Super Bowl title since 2002.
