What This Football Player Does For A Young Autistic Boy Will Give You Goosebumps

Just in case you were wondering, there are still good people in the world.

Bo Paske, a middle school student in Tallahassee, Florida has autism. His mom, Leah, shared in a Facebook post, "Sometimes I'm grateful for his autism. That may sound like a terrible thing to say, but in some ways I think, I hope, it shields him." She says he doesn't notice when people stare at him or when he's left out. But the days Leah feels the most sad for her son is when he eats lunch by himself. She says Bo is super sweet and it breaks her heart when he eats alone.

Enter: Florida State University wide receiver, Travis Rudolph.

Travis Rudolph was visiting Bo's school with other players fro the FSU football team.

"I was just a kid not too long ago and I remember what the impact was of guys that played in college and in the NFL coming back to us," Rudolph told ESPN. "So I feel like maybe I can change someone's life or I can make someone a better person or make someone want to be great or be like me, or even better."
