Format: Hardcover
As a Denver Broncos season ticket holder since I was 12 years old (1968), I anxiously awaited a chance to read Floyd Little's new book, Promises to Keep, written with Tom Mackie.

Floyd was a childhood hero of mine. I watched many of his games live from the old South Stands of Mile High Stadium during his playing career (1967-75). This book gave me a behind the scenes look at what REALLY was going on with Floyd during his years with the Broncos. I loved all the stories he shares about interactions with his teammates and coaches. How Floyd body slammed offensive tackle Mike Current to the ground at half time because of Current's uninspired play in one game, how defensive end Lyle Alzado, big ego and all, would intentionally jump off sides so he could hear his name over the stadium public address system, and how the Denver players had to endure the tirades of head coach Lou Saban. These and many other stories will be of great interest to anyone who was a fan of the Broncos in those years.

More than a behind the scenes look at pro football, though, Promises to Keep is also a motivational tale. "I wanted to write this book in the hope of inspiring fans like you to go out and fulfill your own dreams," Floyd writes on page 1. "If you're not doing everything you can to live your dream, you have to ask yourself, 'What am I waiting for?' Life is not a dress rehearsal. It's the only one you get."

Floyd's life story is inspiring. He was a troubled youth who grew up in poverty. "I was shy and self-conscious," Floyd writes. The outgoing Floyd Little was shy? I would have never guessed. He overcomes a difficult childhood to become his high school class president and a team leader at Syracuse University.

I bought this as a gift for my brother-in-law. All of us are huge Broncos fans and his favorite player of all times was Floyd Little, so I wanted to get Floyd's book for him. The book arrived in great shape and, since I am a Prime member, it arrived in two days.
I had the pleasure of being there when he opened the present and his pleasure was very noticeable. I haven't had a chance to read it yet, but the gift hit the bullseye.

I attended Syracuse at the same time Floyd played for them. He was the greatest collegiate running back of all time. In the first college game I ever saw in person, he scored five touchdowns against Kansas and Gail Sayers. Any NFL fan will enjoy this book as it is full of short stories about the many great players that Floyd came up against.
