Gronk Is Now In The Guinness Book Of World Records

Rob Gronkowski can add a new title to his many achievements as the Super Bowl winner, All-Pro tight end and WWE champion is now a Guinness World Record holder. 

The Trentonian reports the former Arizona Wildcat and Tampa Bay Buccaneers star set a record for “highest altitude catch of an American football” Friday evening. 

Wearing his college number No. 48 Arizona jersey over shoulder pads and a helmet, Gronk caught a football that was dropped from a helicopter hovering 600 feet above the turf at Arizona Stadium.

The Trentonian reports the previous record was set in 2017 at TCU, when Tyler Toney caught a ball that was dropped from 563 feet as part of a “Dude Perfect” YouTube video series, but four years later, and the title now belongs to Gronkowski.
