Denver Bronco great Floyd Little is already a member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, but now he will be a member of the Hometown Hall of Fame.

Little is set to be honored Wednesday, May 2 in his hometown of New Haven, CT as a Hometown Hall of Famer which is a national program put on by the Pro Football Hall of Fame and Allstate Insurance Company. The program honors the hometown roots of football’s greatest players with special ceremonies and plaque dedication events in local communities.

Little was a standout player at James Hillhouse High School and the now-closed Bordentown Military Academy in New Haven. Little will be presented with a plaque at 12:30 p.m. ET at James Hillhouse High School and the plaque will serve as an inspiration to the entire community. A commemorative “Hometown Hall of Fame” road sign will be on display in New Haven as well.

After high school, Lloyd went on to play football at Syracuse University where he was a three-time All-American running back.

Lloyd was a first-round draft selection by the Broncos in 1967. During his nine-year career, he had 6,323 rushing yards, 2,418 receiving yards, and 54 touchdowns.

If you’re in the New Haven area and have some free time, stop by to honor this great Bronco.
