Bo Paske is now ‘the most popular kid in the room’

In case you missed it, a photo went viral a few days ago of Florida State wide receiver Travis Rudolph eating lunch with an autistic middle school student. His name is Bo Paske, and he was previously sitting alone. You can read more about the heartwarming interaction here.

Now, Bo is the most popular kid in school. His mother explained on Thursday morning in an interview with "Fox and Friends."

"Actually, yesterday, in the cafeteria he was sitting at a table full of girls," Leah Paske said. "He was the most popular kid in the room ... he had a seat at the table full of people."

Leah, Travis and Bo all appeared on the program this morning. Bo, himself, is still in awe of the incredible moment.

“It was kind of like me sitting on a rainbow,” he said.

Awesome stuff.
