Larry Little

At Bethune-Cookman College, Larry Little was a two-way tackle, team captain, and a three-time All-Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference selection. He would go undrafted after his college career, and have a short stint as a free agent with the San Diego Chargers before being traded to the Miami Dolphins. During the 1970s, Little was a fixture on the Dolphins’ offensive line. He was named the NFL Players Association’s AFC Lineman of the Year three years in a row (1970 - 1972) and was selected to play in five Pro Bowls. Known for his leadership and toughness, he missed only four games in his first 11 seasons with the Dolphins. During their perfect 1972 season, the Dolphins rushed for a then league record 2,960 yards and Larry Little was a key part in their rushing attack. He played in three Super Bowls, winning two: Super Bowl VII and Super Bowl VIII. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1993.
