Larry Little, unlike many highly touted Miami Dolphins stars of the 1970s, began his career in 1967 as an unheralded free agent with the San Diego Chargers. Larry, who had been a two-way tackle, team captain and an All-Conference choice at Bethune-Cookman College, enjoyed only moderate success during his two years in San Diego.
Little, who grew up in South Florida, spent his first two pro football seasons with Sid Gillman’s San Diego Chargers from 1967 to 1968. After a serendipitous turn of events, Little returned to Miami and became one of the stalwarts of Don Shula’s 1970s Dolphins – one of the most dominant teams in NFL history.
Larry started all 14 games that season as the Dolphins went 10-4 and reached the playoffs behind the league’s third-ranked rushing offense. The NFLPA named Larry its Offensive Lineman of the Year. He won that award again the following season (and once more in 1972) as Miami reached the Super Bowl with the NFL’s top rushing attack.
In Miami, Larry Little was settling into retirement after his stellar career with the Miami Dolphins. Little literally led Miami to a pair of Super Bowl titles by clearing holes for running back greats Jim Kiick, Larry Csonka and Mercury Morris while protecting Bob Griese and Earl Morrall. It was the golden age of pro football in Miami.
