Rob Gronkowski

From the Series Football Stars Up Close

Fans and teammates alike know Rob Gronkowski as "Gronk." The fun-loving NFL tight end grew up with four energetic brothers, playing football from an early age. After sharpening his football skills in high school and college, Gronk was chosen by the New England Patriots in the 2010 NFL draft. However, despite an amazing rookie season, a series of injuries threatened to end Gronk's NFL career. He wondered if he would ever return to the field. Fortunately, Gronk worked hard and overcame his injuries. He even helped lead the Patriots to victory against the Seattle Seahawks in Super Bowl XLIX (49)! In Rob Gronkowski, young readers get a close-up view of the famous tight end's inspiring journey from his childhood, through his college years playing for the University of Arizona, and then all the way to NFL stardom. Large, full-color photos paired with engaging, simple text will keep sports fans on the edge of their seats as they cheer Gronk on through his amazing career.
