NFL player Rob Gronkowski has added another accolade to his long list of achievements.

Last Friday, he made it into the Guinness Book of World Records with the longest reception of his career — more than 600 feet — as a football was dropped from a helicopter high above Arizona Stadium in Tucson.

The former University of Arizona standout came out of retirement to join Tom Brady on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers squad. The Bucs defeated Kansas City in the Super Bowl earlier this year giving “Gronk” a fourth championship ring.
