Former Broncos running back Floyd Little, a Denver legend, will be in Canton Saturday night finally becoming a football immortal.
Meanwhile in Denver, Josh McDaniels, a Canton native, will honor Little during the Broncos’ scrimmage, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.
McDaniels called Little this morning at 6:20 A.M. Denver time to tell him the team would wear No. 44 decals (Little’s number) on their helmets on Saturday night. The team will also play Little’s induction speech on the Invesco Field big screen after the scrimmage.
It’s a cool gesture by McDaniels, who plans to have Little speak to the team in September when Little formally receives his Hall of Fame ring during a game against the Colts.
And because we don’t know where else to put this link, please check out Gary Smith’s piece on Little from Sports Illustrated a few weeks back. It’s an incredible, well-written story.
