Hall of Famer FLOYD LITTLE will be at the Pro Football Hall of Fame on Saturday, May 27 for the Hall’s second “Gold Jacket Saturday” of 2017. Fans will have the opportunity to meet Little and take a photo with the Hall of Fame running back. The event is included in the price of admission.

The meet and greet portion of the event is open to all guests who purchase admission into the museum on a first-come, first-served basis. Spaces will be limited due to time constraints and only guests with wristbands will be permitted in for the photo-op. Wristbands for the event will be handed out at the Hall of Fame Box Office beginning at 9 a.m. A professional photographer will be taking pictures that can be purchased or fans may take a photo with their personal cell phone or camera. Autographs are not permitted.

All Hall of Fame Members are invited to attend a private, pre-event, Gold Jacket Chalk Talk with Little at 10 a.m. that day. Members will get an intimate glimpse into the life and career of Little during the exclusive session. The Chalk Talk is limited to the first 100 members who RSVP with preregistration closing Wednesday, May 24 at noon. Members will then be admitted first into the meet and greet session at 11 a.m. Additionally, they will receive a free professionally printed picture of their experience after the event.

Little was selected sixth overall out of Syracuse in the 1967 AFL-NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. He began his professional career as a return specialist, but then quickly transitioned to the Broncos star running back. In 1970, Little led the AFC in rushing yards. He then won the NFL rushing title in 1971 and became the Broncos’ first 1,000-yard rusher. During his nine-year career, Little was named to five AFL All-Star Games/Pro Bowls and amassed more than 12,000 all-purpose yards and 54 touchdowns. At the time of his retirement in 1975, Little was 7th all-time in rushing yards. Little was enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2010.

Future “Gold Jacket Saturdays” include THURMAN THOMAS on June 10 and DAN HAMPTON on July 8.
