In a video posted by the football team on Twitter, you can see Gronkowski successfully catch a football that was dropped from a helicopter hovering 600 feet above Arizona Stadium.

The tight end was in full gear and surrounded by the college’s current team cheering him on.

The third time was a charm for Gronkowski as the football that was dropped was securely caught after the first two slipped through his hands.

With a world record in hand, you can only wonder what the Buccaneers star will be up to next.
