TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — A Florida State University football player who ate his lunch with a child who was sitting alone is now doing something extra special for his young friend.
FSU wide receiver Travis Rudolph was visiting Montford Middle School with some teammates when he came upon Bo Paske, 11, sitting in the cafeteria by himself. He sat down next to him, and Bo’s mother posted a photo of the two of them on Facebook.
“I’m not sure what exactly made this incredibly kind man share a lunch table with my son, but I’m happy to say that it will not soon be forgotten,” she wrote. The post has since gone viral, touching hearts around the world.
On Tuesday, Rudolph surprised Bo with a custom FSU jersey. The jersey featured Rudolph’s number and Bo’s last name.
After Bo received the jersey, the two hugged it out. The FSU football team shared a video on their Twitter account.
