Floyd Little's Tales from the Broncos Sideline - Book Review
One of the tried and true formats of the sports memoir is to assemble a collection of anecdotes about the player’s life and career. But the real challenge is to make the book flow. All too often, as interesting as the stories are, the result is a choppy, uneven book.
Little takes us through his pre-college and college years of the game and the who’s who of inspirational people that marched in and out of his life. He candidly discusses the challenges of being an African-American. Later in the book Little tells us why he much preferred playing in Denver over anywhere in the South.
Denver Bronco fans, old and new should be familiar with the struggles the Broncos went through in those early years of the franchise.
Little talks about the bounties the Raiders put on Bronco players and Bronco stats too.
