Look: This Mother's Post About an FSU Football Player Having Lunch With Her Autistic Son Will Bring Tears to Your Eyes

A little empathy goes a long way.

Florida State University wide receiver Travis Rudolph is about to gain a lot of new fans — and it's not for anything he did on the football field, but for something special he did off of it.

As reported by Bleacher Report, Seminoles football players visited a local middle school earlier this week and during the visit, Rudolph ate lunch with a boy named Bo Paske, who was sitting by himself.

Paske has autism and the junior wideout's kind gesture of joining him for lunch went a long way with the boy's mother, who took to her Facebook to deliver a tear-jerking, poignant post.

Read it in full below.

Touching to say the least and just a reminder how the little things in life go a long way.

Rudolph reacted emotionally upon learning of Bo's mother Leah Paske's post in speaking with local Florida media.

An amazing young man, indeed.

We hope that Travis has an excellent 2016 season and that he and Bo continue their friendship.
