Standing on the track around the football field on Steelton’s Cottage Hill, Alison Mohn embraces a family friend, Mitchell, rubbing his head. “That’s how Ryan’s hair felt,” Alison says, a pang of pain in her voice.
It’s been almost 10 years since her son, Ryan Lee Mohn, the star quarterback on Steelton-Highspire’s football team, died from injuries he sustained in a car accident, but as the months and years pass, the reminders never fade away.
Some friends and family close to him have inked their remembrances on themselves – tattoos of his jersey numbers, angel wings and crosses. And a number of strangers have a reminder, too, a piece of Ryan that they literally carry with them.
