It all started with a piece of pizza. FSU’s Travis Rudolph was with other FSU players visiting Montford Middle School in Tallahassee Tuesday when he saw little Bo Paske eating by himself in the cafeteria. Grabbing a slice of pizza, he asked the 11 year-old autistic boy if he could join him.
The child said, “Sure, why not,” Rudolph recalled after returning to campus.
After the photo went viral, Rudolph returned to the school, this time with with a personalized Seminoles jersey with Rudolph’s No. 15 and Paske’s name on the back. As if that weren’t enough, he presented Bo and his mother, Leah, with a pair of tickets to one of their football games.
