Baltimore Ravens super fan who is blind to make NFL Draft pick history

The NFL Draft is highly anticipated among hundreds of NFL hopefuls anxiously waiting to hear their names called. This year, in particular, the 2019 NFL Draft will be extra special for 13-year-old Baltimore Ravens super fan Mo Gaba. 

Gaba, who is blind, will be the first person in history to announce an NFL draft pick off of a card written in Braille. On Saturday, the 13-year-old will call out the Ravens’ fourth-round pick and No.123 overall. 

Gaba lost his sight when he was nine months old and is battling cancer for the third time. 

On Wednesday, while Gaba was calling a local radio show 98 Rock, Ravens head coach John Harbaugh dialed in on the call and surprised Gaba with an invitation to announce the pick.  

“What? Really? I’ve never done that before,” Gaba said with a big smile on his face. “I would like to do that yeah.”

Harbaugh also told the 13-year-old that the Ravens will send a car to pick him and his mother up and that they’d be sure to grant him with red-carpet treatment.
