Floyd Little's Speech At The Pro Football Hall Of Fame Induction Ceremony

Floyd Little delivered a thundering sermon for his Hall of Fame induction speech tonight. Little eschewed talking about football for the vast majority of his speech, opting instead to honor everything about his life that came off the field. He mentioned his family members by name, whether there with him at Canton or departed.

He also sent clear, religion-drenched messages to students, athletes, and young men to improve themselves in the classroom and with their family.

In essence, Little's speech was a Football Hall of Fame induction speech that didn't actually have anything to do with football. It was about life.
