Gronkowski Adds Super Bowl Title to Arizona Football History
TAMPA BAY, Fla. – The Super Bowl legacy of Arizona Football added another chapter with former Wildcat Rob Gronkowski winning his fourth NFL championship on Sunday as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers defeated the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LV. Gronkowski caught six passes for 67 yards and a pair of touchdowns in the 31-9 victory. He joined Jerry Rice as the only players in NFL history to catch multiple touchdowns in the same Super Bowl.
The tight end's appearance in Super Bowl LV was the fifth of his career after missing Super Bowl LI with a back injury as former Arizona Wildcats have made it to the Super Bowl 52 total times. Ten Wildcats have appeared in multiple Super Bowls as current Senior Advisor to the Head Coach Tedy Bruschi joins Glenn Parker and Gronkowski with five or more appearances in the Super Bowl.
Gronkowski's four NFL championships also lead all Arizona Football alumni ahead of Tedy Bruschi's three Super Bowl rings. The 2021 championship for Gronkowski is also the first Super Bowl win by a former Wildcat since Nick Foles won Super Bowl LII and became the only Wildcat to be named Super Bowl MVP in 2018.
