Rudolph this weekend found out he’s going pro, signing with the New York Giants as an undrafted free agent, the “Today” show reported.

And who was he spending time with when he found out? No other than his young friend Bo and Bo’s family.

The news of Rudolph’s career taking off was overshadowed after a recent accident. His father Darryl was killed in an accidental shooting the week prior, The Palm Beach Post reported.

“His dad was the rock of the family. What he wanted more than anything was for his son to be successful in that endeavor. The loss was devastating,” Bo’s mother Leah told “Today.”
