How Lou Little Helped Shape College Football
Nearly a century ago, from humble beginnings in Boston and Leominster, Massachusetts, Lou Little began his college football coaching career at Georgetown University. Six years later, after rebuilding the Hoyas’ football program to prominence, he began a legendary coaching career at Columbia University. His tenure there lasted twenty-six years.
In today’s college football circles, Little is not as well-known as some of the luminaries of his day. Frank Leahy, Pop Warner, Fielding Yost, and Alonzo Stag may all be more recognizable figures today, but Little’s contributions to the development and promotion of college football are no less significant.
Any lover of college football, or football in general, should know the story of College Football Hall of Fame Coach Lou Little.
