Gronk undeterred by lockout

Even though the NFL lockout is into its fourth month, Amherst native Rob Gronkowski is very busy preparing as if there is going to be a season.

The New England Patriots tight end, who attended the 25th annual Jim Kelly Celebrity Golf Tournament at Terry Hills in Batavia, participated in a workout with about 40 teammates at Boston College last week. He has been training regularly with a few Patriots in New England and flying to Tuscon, Ariz., to workout with his former University of Arizona strength and conditioning coach and fellow Wildcats.

The strapping 6-foot-6, 265-pound Gronkowski looks very fit and is ready to build on a tremendous rookie season in which he became the first rookie tight end since the NFL-AFL merger with 10 touchdown catches.

For more on Gronkowski, ready Tuesday's Buffalo News.
