It's not every day the sports of football and field hockey cross paths on the same field. This past weekend, Assumption College sophomore, Shannon Quinlan, and her sister, Sarah, figured practicing at Williamsville North High School in Williamsville, N.Y. would be just another afternoon well spent. It certainly was the case until they saw "a big guy" walking toward them. As it turned out, it was former Williamsville North High School student and former New England Patriots and now Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end, Rob Gronkowski.

Quinlan went over to "Gronk" to say hello and snap a photo. Moments later an intrigued Gronk came back over to Quinlan and her sister and tried his had at the sport. Shown below is the three-time Super Bowl champion showing off his skills by aerial dribbling and shooting on goal.
