Leah Paske is the proud mother of a little boy named Bo. Bo, who is autistic, is in sixth grade at Tallahassee’s Montford Middle School, Florida. And it was here that something very special happened to him one lunchtime.

Because of his autism, Bo struggled socially at school. In fact, his mom wrote on Facebook that her son “didn’t seem to notice that he doesn’t get invited to birthday parties.” She also mentioned that he often ate lunch alone.

But one day, as Bo was eating lunch by himself, something very unusual happened. You see, there was somewhat of a celebrity in the lunch hall that day.

And that celebrity was none other than Florida State football star Travis Rudolph. Rudolph was visiting the school with a few of his teammates when he came into the canteen and spotted Bo at a table all by himself.

What he did next was truly heartwarming. Yes, he decided to walk over to Bo and join him for lunch. The two had a chat, too, and unsurprisingly, a photograph of their meeting subsequently went viral online.

“We just had a great conversation. He started off, telling me his name was Bo, telling me how much he loves Florida State. We went from there,” the football star told.
