BALTIMORE — Although no fans will be in the stands at M&T Bank Stadium for the Ravens season opener on Sunday, one's legacy will be present.

Two sections directly behind Baltimore's end zone will be specially named Mo's Rows, dedicated to super fan Mo Gaba.

On Friday the team released a video on social media surprising Mo's mother, Sonsy, with hundreds of cardboard cutouts of her son filling the seats.

The team will also paint gold the M and O portion of Baltimore inside their end zone.

Gaba passed away at age 14 in July.

Mo became known throughout Baltimore in 2015 when he began calling into a radio program on 105.7 the Fan.

He lost his eyesight to a malignant tumor when he was only 9-months-old, and would beat multiple bouts of cancer before his death.

Mo has since been elected to the Baltimore Orioles Hall of Fame and has a place in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, after becoming the first person to announce an NFL draft pick using braille in 2019.
