Former Broncos running back and new Hall of Fame inductee Floyd Little stopped by the Sirius XM set to sit down with Gil Brandt and Howard Balzer and spoke about his reaction to hearing his name called today when the Class of 2010 was announced.
“When they called my name I fell on the floor, and my family came around me and prayed,” Little said.
Little admitted that after 29 years, he didn’t always believe this day would come.
“We have waited a long time and it didn’t seem like this would ever happen. A couple years ago I actually gave up on it.”
“This year, I had that faith because it was the 44th Super Bowl, I wore No. 44. Dick Lebeau, who was also voted in, wore 44, and it’s the 44th president. I just had the feeling, and I just owned it that it was going to happen this time. Here I am and I feel very good about it.”
