Last week, Florida State football wide receiver Travis Rudolph visited a Tallahassee area middle school with a few teammates. While eating lunch, he noticed a child, Bo Paske, eating alone at a table. The FSU junior went over and ate lunch with the child, and the two have become great friends ever since.

While giving an interview to ESPN, Rudolph surprised Paske and his mother, giving Bo his own, personalized No. 15 jersey as well as a pair of tickets for the ‘Noles season opener in Orlando.

Before making his appearance, Bo Paske’s mother became emotional when talking about the impact Rudolph has made on her son. The receiver went on to say, “I saw him by himself, and I asked him if I could sit down and eat with him, and he said sure why not. Then he opened a conversation with me.”

The ‘Noles open up its 2016 season on Monday night against Ole Miss in Orlando with Bo Paske and his mother, Leah, in attendance.
