On This Day in Broncos History: October 29

Joe Robbins

Remember that guy named Floyd?

Oct 29, 1972 - Floyd Little Day was held in Denver to celebrate the life & career of one of the Broncos most beloved players. Interestingly enough, the city of Denver did not wait until AFTER Little’s career to honor him. The 1972 season was his sixth with the team and he went on to play three more seasons. Little was drafted by the Broncos in the 1st round of the 1967 NFL Draft. He played in 117 games with 93 starts. Little gained 6323 yards on 1641 carries for a 3.9 yard per attempt average. He scored 43 rushing touchdowns. He also caught 215 passes for 2418 yards and 9 receiving touchdowns. He was voted into 5 Pro Bowls and was voted 1st Team All Pro once. Little led the NFL in rushing yards in 1971, rushing touchdowns in 1973 and rushing yards per game in 1969 and 1971. These are just a few of his many accomplishments. He was accorded the highest honor for an NFL player when he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010.
