Long ago, Syracuse University was the hot spot for All-American running backs. Some of the best backs in NCAA history lived on The Hill and played at Archibold Stadium under coaching great Ben Schwartzwalder.
When thinking about Syracuse football, Jim Brown is always one of the first names that comes to mind. In 1956, Brown averaged 6.2 yards per carry and set records for most touchdowns and most points in one game.
Little was the sixth pick in the first round of the 1967 NFL draft. He led the AFL in rushing in twice (1969 & 1971) and at the time of his retirement, was 7th in professional football history with 6,323 yards and 43 touchdowns.
