Travis Rudolph, the Florida State University football player who befriended Bo Paske, an 11-year-old boy with autism, gifted the young man with an honorary jersey and free game tickets, according to a report by Time magazine.

Last week their friendship went viral when Rudolph joined Bo for lunch at his middle school after Rudolph saw that the boy was eating in the cafeteria alone.

According to Time, Bo's mom, Leah, said that Bo no longer eats lunch by himself. "It makes me feel much better to know that people would surround him with love there," she said.
