Floyd Little Elected to Hall of Fame

February 6, 2010

It’s been 35 years since the Broncos first great player Floyd Little retired from football, before the days of Broncos glory. Now, so many years later, the Bronco will finally be enshrined in Canton, Ohio as only the 3rd Bronco to have done so.

He ended his career with 6,323 yards on the ground, over 1,600 carries and 43 career touchdowns. Through the air he received for over 2,000 yards adding brand new dimensions to the Broncos offense. He made a name for himself not only carving defenses up as a running back and receiver but at the same time changing special teams as one of the first great return men.

It can even be said that Floyd saved the Denver Broncos. There was seemingly no chance that the Broncos could stay in Denver, for they just had no good players. He made fans come to watch, and helped the Denver Broncos grow as a team to the point where the Orange Crush could follow up, and the Broncos could put together such a great history.

Congratulations to Floyd Little, and we can’t wait to see him in Canton!

    This is such good news. Thanks to all of you who have worked so hard to press Floyd case. Wouldn’t it be great for there to be parade in Denver on the Sunday a week after the HOF induction ceremony, with a rally in Civic Center park complete with a large screen to show footage from Floyd’s career, and reading from his book (I love wrong huddle story in the game against the Bears). It should be on the weekend so Coach Dave Logan and other coaches can invite their players to come honor a legend.

    Let’s make it happen.
