Floyd Little Biography

Floyd Little was born July 4, 1942 in New Haven, Connecticut and is an NFL Hall of Fame running back, and was a three-time American football All-American running back at Syracuse University, following in the footsteps of many great running backs at Syracuse such as Jim Brown and Ernie Davis. In 1967 Floyd Little was the 6th selection of the first common NFL-AFL draft. He was the first ever first-round draft pick to sign with the American Football League's Denver Broncos where he was known simply as The Franchise for saving the team from certain relocation by forcing the expansion of Mile High Stadium and generating a string of sellouts that lasts today.

Little led the NFL in rushing for the six-year period from 1968 to 1973. He retired as the 7th leading rusher in NFL history with 6,323 yards rushing and 54 touchdowns.

Legend has it that he was fired by coach Lou Saban after a fumble that led to a late-game lead for the Buffalo Bills in 1968. Little, after refusing to leave the huddle, asked QB Marlin Briscoe to throw the ball as far as you can and I'll catch it. Briscoe threw it, Little caught it, and the Broncos kicked a winning field goal.

Little became a charter member of the Broncos' Ring of Fame in 1984; he was the first Bronco to win the AFC rushing title with 901 yards in 1970; the following year he became the first Bronco to eclipse 1,000 yards, gaining 1,133, to lead the entire NFL. He was an American Football League All-Star in 1968, named first-team All-League in 1969, and made the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl in 1970, 1971 and 1973. At just 5'10 and 195 pounds, Little was a pioneer who became the smallest back to lead the league in rushing since before World War II. He was as versatile as he was exciting. He led the league in combined yards in 1967 & 68 and was the only player to return punts for TDs in both seasons. During his prime, 196873, he led the NFL in both yards Rushing and Yards from Scrimmage (rushing and receiving). Little was voted Running Back of the year in 1972 by the Professional Football Writers of America, and was 1 of just 7 players to total more than 100 yards (104) per game. Incredibly, despite spending most of his career as the lone offensive threat on a losing team, he was one of the most explosive offensive threats of his time.

Despite retiring as the 7th leading rusher in NFL history, Little had not yet been admitted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, while the first six were in the Hall of Fame. In the summer of 2009, Little was nominated and became a finalist for induction into the Professional Football Hall of Fame. He was finally rewarded for his work in the NFL and was voted in on February 6, 2010, his induction will take place in Canton, OH in the summer of 2010. Little was the first Bronco to have his jersey 44 officially retired.

Little also coached at the University of California, Santa Barbara, when the university briefly reinstated NCAA football in the mid-eighties.

He briefly served as an NFL analyst for NBC in the 1970s, and was featured as a contestant on the Ray Combs era of Family Feud.

Little is a member of The Pigskin Club Of Washington, D.C. National Intercollegiate All-American Football Players Honor Roll. In 1983 he was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame.

On Feb 6, 2010 it was reported by the Denver Post  that Floyd Little has been elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Nominated by the seniors committee, Little was elected into the Pro Football Hall of Fame, finally capping his nine-year career with the Broncos from 1967-75.
