11. Floyd Little

The Denver Broncos might be one of the premier franchises in the National Football League now, but in their early years, they were not very good and had very little reason to sell tickets.  One of the few good things they had was Floyd Little, their first Round Running Back from 1967.

Floyd Little diagnosed with cancer

It was announced today that Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee, Floyd Little, 77, is battling cancer.  

GoFundMe page has been set up by Patrick Killorin, his teammate at Syracuse to help with the expenses to fight the disease.

Little was a three-time All-American, and his number 44 was retired by the Orange. The Halfback was chosen seventh overall in the 1967 Draft by the Denver Broncos, which would be the only NFL team he ever played for.  In his nine-year career, Little was a five-time Pro Bowl Selection and would rush for 6,323 Yards, with another 2,418 accumulated in the air.  

After he retired, his number was retired by the Broncos, and his name is enshrined in the Broncos Ring of Fame.

Little entered the Pro Football Hall in 2010 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 1983.

We here at wish Floyd Little the best in his fight against cancer.
