The NFL mourns the loss of Connecticut's own, Floyd Little. who died at the age of 78. Little was not only a great player, but a great man. He was inducted into both the College Football Hall of Fame and the NFL Pro Football Hall of Fame. But it all started right in New Haven - at Hillhouse High School - and that's why - I loved and respected him so much - he came from my state -- Connecticut.
