As an autism parent myself, this story did my heart good. The story went so viral, it was even covered by the BBC:

Travis Rudolph, a wide receiver for Florida State, was visiting a school in Tallahassee on Tuesday when he saw Bo Paske sitting by himself.

His mother, Leah, posted a photo to Facebook, where it quickly went viral.

She said that since that day her son had had no problem finding people to have lunch with him. "This is one day I didn't have to worry if my sweet boy ate lunch alone," she said.
