College football player eats lunch with autistic boy who was sitting alone

(FOX NEWS)- When Florida State University football players visited a Tallahassee middle school, one of them noticed a boy eating lunch by himself in the cafeteria.

Wide receiver Travis Rudolph, who led the Seminoles in receiving last year, walked up to sixth-grader Bo Paske and asked if he could sit with him.

A photo was snapped and shared with Bo's mom, Leah Paske, who was brought to tears by the kind gesture.

She shared the photo on Facebook in an emotional post, revealing that Bo is autistic and often eats lunch by himself.
