A new world record was set at Arizona Stadium this past Friday and Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski has added to his football resume.
Prior to the Arizona football spring game, former Wildcat star Rob Gronkowski returned to the University of Arizona stadium to catch a football like he never caught before. Gronkowski stood at the 50-yard line in front of the entire Arizona football program and successfully caught a football from a helicopter that was hovering at 600 feet in the air.
The four-time Super Bowl champion cemented his name into the Guinness World Records for the highest altitude catch of all-time.
Gronkowski’s catch was from 620 feet up in the air, which is a new world record for ‘Highest Altitude Catch of an American Football’ that is now under review by the Guinness World Records. The current record stands at 563 feet.
As soon as Gronkowski caught the ball and broke the world record, the Arizona football team mobbed the 6-foot-6 tight end and joined in on the celebration.
