Rob Gronkowski is popularly known for his antics on and off the field. Playing as one of the best tight ends in NFL history, Gronk likes to party his face off whenever he gets the chance. There is possibly an equal amount of videos of Gronk partying as there are of his highlights in the NFL.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end made some noise on Saturday while visiting his alma mater, the University of Arizona. During his trip, Gronkowski pulled off a stunt, catching a football dropped from 600 feet in the air, per Bleacher Report.

A helicopter is seen hovering above the Wildcats football field in the clip. Gronkowski, decked in Arizona football gear, stood at the 50-yard line waiting for the ball. He caught it like a punt returner, setting a new Guinness World Record.
Not only does Rob Gronkowski win rings in the NFL, but he sets world records as well. When he’s done, he parties harder than most people would ever dare. On top of that, he held a position in the WWE as a wrestler for a short stint before his return to football. What can’t Gronk do?
There is still plenty of time between now and the 2021 season. There is no telling what else Gronkowski might do with his time off.
With the Buccaneers bringing back all 22 starters from the Super Bowl-winning team, the franchise has set themselves up for another run at a title. Gronkowski is sure to play a vital role next season, as he’s been Tom Brady’s right-hand man for 10 years.
