• This Florida State football player, Travis Rudolph, spotted this little boy sitting alone during a visit with the team to a middle school. He went over on his own to sit with the boy, when his mother found out she wrote a tear jerking thank you letter. This little fella is autistic and doesn't have many friends so it made his day. I saw a snippit about this on ESPN and have seen nothing about it on fb. Let's all make more of an effort
to spread] positive things like this!!!!!
