FSU player eats lunch with boy with autism

A Florida State University football player's simple act of kindness is going viral.

A Tallahassee mom is thanking wide receiver Travis Rudolph for sitting with her son at lunch while Seminole players were visiting Montford Middle School.

Leah Paske's son is on the autism spectrum.

Rudolph, a West Palm Beach native and Cardinal Newman High School graduate, was on a trip to the boy's school and noticed the child was eating alone. 


The junior wide receiver decided to sit down and eat some pizza with Paske's son.
