This is definitely one of our favorite stories of the day.

Tom Allen and the Indiana Hoosiers are bowl eligible after a win last weekend. The team is 6-2 and gearing up for an important night game against Northwestern, but that didn’t stop them from taking time out of their day to brighten someone else’s.

Indiana Football tweeted out pictures Friday as the Hoosiers welcomed kids from the LittleStar ABA Therapy organization. According to their Twitter bio, LittleStar is a non-profit organization serving the needs of families and children affected by autism.

It is always good to see collegiate or professional athletes take the time to try and make a difference. These interactions may seem small, but they oftentimes make a big impact in the life of a child.

Hats off to Allen and the Hoosiers for this story! Now, they will turn their attention to Pat Fitzgerald and the Wildcats. Saturday’s kickoff is set for 7:00 pm EST on FS1.
