Little will be honored at the 2014 SEC Football Weekend of Champions Dec. 5-6 in Atlanta, Ga along with 13 other SEC legend selections. The 2014 SEC Legend selections will also be recognized before the SEC Football Championship Game  at the Georgia Dome on Sat., Dec. 6.

Little had the fortune and misfortune of following two-time All-American Terry Hoage as the Georgia Roverback in 1984. However, he made the most of his opportunity, earning a starting role for three straight years (1984-86).

All-SEC in 1985 and 86, Little was a first team All-America both years as well. His 381 career tackles is the best in school history for a defensive back and ranks 7th best in school history for a player at any position.

He was one of 20 players throughout the country chosen by the College Football Association to participate in a television commercial promoting college football. Little was also a two-time Academic All-SEC selection and  elected as the permanent team captain after the 1986 season.
