The Pro Football Hall of Fame’s Seniors Committee has named two players to be considered for nomination to the Pro Football Hall of Fame Class of 2010. These two players will join the other eligible finalists and be subject to the same voting procedure as them. This means that they will have to get the same 80 percent or higher when voting for the Hall of Fame takes place on February 6th, 2010… the day before the Super Bowl.
The two players put forth by the Seniors Committee are Dick LeBeau, who played defensive back for the Detroit Lions from 1959 to 1972, and Floyd Little who played running back for the Denver Broncos from 1967 through 1975.
Since many current football fans don’t know a great deal about these two men, we’ll do a special IQFB Profile on them this coming weekend. Look for Floyd Little’s profile to be up on Saturday and Dick LeBeau’s to be online on Sunday. We might even sneak in a Little Known Facts about these two great players too.
