Leonard Fournette had another huge day against the Syracuse Orange en route to a big win that helped the team get to 3-0. There were sure a lot of superstars in the Carrier Dome for Saturday’s matchup including Karl Malone, whose son plays football for the Tigers.
According to College Spun, there was a former Syracuse legend attending the game as well. Fournette met up with legendary running back Floyd Little after their big win to take a picture with him.
Fournette also expressed his appreciation for Little and all he did for college running backs. Fournette also recognized the college as “Running Back U” for the former greats like Little, Ernie Davis, Larry Csonka, and Jim Brown.
While the Orange haven’t been known for putting a crop of talents at the position in the NFL for a little while, they will always be known for giving the NFL a terrific crop of Hall of Fame backs. If Fournette keeps up his current play, he will more than likely join those guys in the Hall as well.
