Travis Rudolph was not picked in the NFL draft this year but is one of 17 undrafted players to be signed by the New York Giants. And if the wide receiver never ends up being a Giant on the field during a game, it's nice to know that the 21-year-old is way bigger off of it.
Rudolph, you may remember, is the Florida State player whose photo of him sharing lunch with a lonely autistic boy in a school cafeteria went viral and warmed the hearts of many.
And it appears that Rudolph and the young boy, Bo Paske, are still pals.
Rudolph posted an Instagram picture of the pair hanging out during the NFL draft this past week.
The relationship started last August, when the football player visited Tallahassee's Montford Middle School along with four other players to speak with students.
He saw Paske, a sixth-grader who is autistic, by himself at a table in the lunch room, and asked if he could sit with him.
He said the two had a great conversation, calling Bo a "cool" person who he would hang out with any day.
The pair even met up a week later at FSU so Rudolph could give Bo a jersey emblazoned with the name PASKE on the back.
Leah Paske, Bo's mother, was moved to tears upon seeing a photo of the gesture and said she is grateful for the kindness Rudolph showed her son who often eats lunch alone.
In a Facebook post in which she shared a of the lunchroom encounter, Paske said her talked about some of the challenges Bo faces with his disorder including the solo midday meals.
Rudolph led Florida State in receiving the past two seasons and forfeited his final season of eligibility to enter the NFL draft. And now, on a team loaded with receiving talent, the former Seminoles player might be a long shot to make the team.
But if there is anyone worth rooting for it's Travis ... and his buddy Bo.
