Beautiful Story Behind College Football Star And Boy With Autism Bonding Over Lunch

Florida State wide receiver joins Bo Paske for lunch after he spots the boy eating by himself in a middle school cafeteria. For a boy with autism, the one act of kindness has changed his world.

A college football star and a boy with autism bonding over lunch.

It’s now the photo that has melted hearts around the world.

It happened last month when Florida State football players paid a visit to Monford Middle School in Talahassee, Florida.

Star wide receiver Travis Rudolph spied one kid, Bo Paske, eating lunch by himself.

Travis says he thought nothing of making an offer of kindness.

He simply went over to Bo to ask if he could eat lunch with him.

A school safety official snapped a photo of the two and sent it to Bo’s mom.

Leah Paske posted the photo on Facebook with a heartfelt note of appreciation.

For a young man’s kindness.

Here’s more on how that special lunch date came to be.

USA Today also had a nice piece last week on Bo’s visit with the entire Florida State football team, including coach Jimbo Fisher.
