See in that picture above, how no kids are sitting with Bo Paske? That no longer happens anymore according to recent reports.

Last week, Florida State Seminoles wide receiver Travis Rudolph made Bo Paske’s day when he sat with him to eat lunch. Bo, who has autism and is a Florida middle school student, used to sit alone during lunch before this moment.

Bo & Rudolph were recently guests on ‘Fox & Friends’ and after the TV appearance, Bo has been the center of attention at school and no longer sits alone, according to the Washington Post.

“Actually, yesterday, in the cafeteria he was sitting at a table full of girls,” Leah Paske said. “He was the most popular kid in the room … he had a seat at the table full of people.”

Said Leah Paske, who met Rudolph for the first time on “Fox and Friends”: “I’m actually pretty overwhelmed, pretty emotional. Seeing the picture for the first time was, it was, I was just overcome with emotion. I was so grateful; he’s a superstar here. To go into a crowded lunch room where I’m sure he was being flagged down and waved at and that he would choose Bo to sit with, I don’t even have words to express how grateful I am.”
