PHOTO: N.C. State TE Asa Watson, friends share a bite in the dining hall

By Chip Patterson | College Football/Basketball Writer

On Tuesday an image began floating around on Imgur and Reddit with two N.C. State football players sharing a bite to eat in the Clark Dining Hall with a third student. The image has been accompanied with captions regarding the student eating alone, but that's not exactly what is going on in the photo.

The photo, "Two NC State football players sat with a student who was eating alone during lunch" was accessed via imgur:

The players are senior tight end Asa Watson and freshman offensive lineman Cole Blankenship. The third student, according to N.C. State spokesperson Annabelle Meyers, is a friend of Watson's.

Watson, a fifth-year senior, has appeared as a guest on the team's weekly radio show and seems to be an affable member of the program. Seeing him share a meal with someone outside of the football program may surprise some, but it could be just another day in Watson's world.

N.C. State hosts East Carolina on Saturday in the eighth meeting between the in-state rivals since 1996.
