Always good for a laugh and a headline, Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Rob Gronkowski provided all of that and more with his latest stunt.

Back at his alma mater this weekend and serving as an honorary head coach for Saturday's Arizona spring football game, Gronk took the opportunity Friday to suit up in full gear, and set yet another record.

This time, he had his sights set on the Guinness Book of World Records, with an attempt to catch a football dropped 600 feet from a helicopter in the skies above.

It took him a few tries, but Gronk eventually made the record-breaking catch, sending the current Wildcats players into a frenzy.

Just a day in the life for one of the most entertaining players in football.
