On This Day in Broncos History: December 20

Remembering Floyd Little


December 20, 1975 - On a 64-degree day under clear skies, in the Orange Bowl, future Hall of Fame RB Floyd Little played his last game as a Denver Bronco. It was not his most dominating performance as he only had 8 carries for 20 yards. It was a quiet finish to a remarkable, 9-year career which saw Little rush 1641 times for 6323 yards and 43 touchdowns. It was a career that saw Little voted to 5 Pro Bowls and voted All Pro Honors multiple times.

Since retiring from the NFL, Little has: spent time coaching for the University of California, Santa Barbara, spent time as an analyst for NBC Sports, finished a degree from the University of Denver, owned car dealerships in multiple cities and has published two books. In 2010, he entered the NFL's Hall of Fame.
