Well-known financial industry professional, Pieter Stalenhoef who is currently working as a Financial Planner at Highland Financial Group is also a big-time sports enthusiast and an ardent follower of the National Football League's New England Patriots.

Having followed almost all of their games closely, Pieter Stalenhoef could clearly see the impact of the recently departed Rob Gronkowski on the team. The New England Patriots entered the 2019 season with uncertainty at the tight end position for the first time in the last ten years. Pieter says that Rob's departure was a huge setback for the team as he had spent 9 seasons with the Patriots and was a four-time All-Pro tight end. He had led the league in touchdowns in 2011 with 17, and retired with 79 touchdowns in 115 games. The Patriots have since failed to adequately replace Gronkowski, leaning on underperforming, oftentimes non-existent, rookies like Devin Asiasi and Dalton Keene.
