Travis Rudolph and some other Florida State Seminoles visited Montford Middle School in Tallahassee this week. During lunch the players made the rounds talking to the kids. Eventually, Rudolph sat down next to a little kid who was sitting alone. The kid was Bo Paske, a kid with autism. Rudolph sat with him, ate and talked. Someone sent a picture to Bo’s mom. Her Facebook post about the picture will probably make it very dusty wherever you are when you read this.
Without the background information, Rudolph was simply being nice to a kid he didn’t know. Knowing the background information, I want Rudolph to lead the nation in every statistical category this season and go #1 in the NFL Draft next year. You just never know what something so simple can end up meaning to so many people.
Rudolph, a junior, led the team with 59 catches, 916 receiving yards and 7 receiving touchdowns.
