Syracuse football legend Floyd Little passed away at the age of 78. His life will be remembered in Orange history.

On August 28, 2020, legendary actor Chadwick Boseman passed away at the age of 43. The cause was colon cancer, although he kept it secret up until the day he passed, showing his toughness, character, and unselfishness above all else.

Four months later, on January 1, 2021, legendary Syracuse football running back Floyd Little died at the age of 78. Like Boseman, Little had cancer.
