Better headline than mine, Submitter. Nicely put in very respectful manner.

He really was little!


What he lacked in size, Floyd Little more than made up for it in skill and talent:

5× Pro Bowl (1968-1971, 1973)
First-team All-Pro (1969)
2× Second-team All-Pro (1970, 1971)
NFL rushing yards leader (1971)
NFL rushing touchdowns leader (1973)
Denver Broncos No. 44 retired
Denver Broncos Ring of Fame
3× First-team All-American (1964-1966)
Syracuse Orange No. 44 retired

And in 2010, Floyd Little was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame along with Jerry Rice and Emmitt Smith.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Little.

Mr. Little reminds me of Emmitt Smith, who was more from my time, a smaller guy that was fast and can kick your buns.

I played poker with him numerous times at the MGM Grand and at Red Rock Casino. His wife was always with him. They were both wonderful people.

CSB: When I was in highschool I visited a friend who attended SU and tutored to help cover expenses. While I was there he had a tutoring session with Floyd Little and I tagged along. At the time I was big and Little's dorm room was small but since my friend was a skinny miler and Little was little we fit okay...until Jim Nance showed up to visit Floyd. As I recall, they were both nice guys.

I'm glad he got into the HOF while alive.  He was done before I was old enough to enjoy Broncos football, but without him, there probably wasn't Broncos football for me to enjoy.

RIP.
