Videos by OutKick

Fans will not be in the stands today in Baltimore where the Ravens will face the Browns, but there will be more than 500 cutouts of superfan Mo Gaba in section 146 to honor the 14-year-old boy who died July 28 after a lifelong battle with cancer.

Mo, who had battled cancer four times over his 14 years and lost his eyesight before turning one, was a legend in Baltimore, according to WBAL-TV, for his calls to local sports talk radio and his love of Baltimore sports.

“My heart is with Mo’s parents, friends and family. He was a great kid. He really didn’t get to express his ability to show the world what he was made of, and I just want to send my heart out to him. He’s a great soul,” Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson said after Mo’s death.

Mo was elected to the Orioles Hall of Fame shortly before his death and he was honored with the Wild Bill Hagy Award, a high honor in Baltimore as he was recognized as one of the most passionate fans in the history of the franchise. What does Mo mean to the city? In 2019, sports radio host Damon Amendolara explained it all. ”

“Just thinking positive is all you can do, really,” Mo said in 2019 about his situation. “All you gotta do is think positive and you’ll get through it. Nothing can slow you down if you think positive.”

Today it will be all about the Ravens as Mo cutouts will have section 146 — Mo’s Rows — covered. And there’s more. The ‘Mo’ in Baltimore will be gold for day’s game in honor of the boy who gave so much of his heart to the city.

Good luck getting through this video without getting a little choked up.
