Biography:

Former professional football player Floyd Little got his start at the Syracuse University, where he was a three-time All American. Sports Speaker Floyd’s NFL career took off when he was selected by the Denver Broncos in the 1967 Draft. He became the team’s first to reach 1,000 rushing yard milestone and the NFL rushing title in 1971. Despite being the team’s leading rusher for nine years and being inducted into seven different Halls of Fame, Floyd always stayed humble, sincere, and generous, going the extra mile to help a struggling teammate or stopping what he was doing to sign an autograph. He served as captain for all his years with the Broncos, even his rookie season with his team, which is proof that the Hall of Famer was just as committed to building up others as he was himself. Gracious, authentic, and sincere, Floyd was, and always will be, an inspiration and natural leader.

In 2010, Floyd was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame along Dick LeBeau, Emmitt Smith, Jerry Rice, Russ Grimm, Rickey Jackson, and John Randle; he was also an inaugural member of the Broncos Ring of Fame. Without a doubt, Floyd left his mark on football, and both the Broncos and Syracuse retired his jersey, number 44.

After the end of his playing career, Floyd served as an analyst on NBC Sports and was also a highly successful Ford Dealer, being requested by the automobile industry giant to consult and train in its Minority Dealers Program Dealer Development. The recipient of many community service awards, the former athlete is heavily involved with numerous charitable efforts and events nationwide. The father of two enjoys sharing his story as a public speaker around the country, and also holds a master’s degree in legal administration from the University of Denver.
