Lawrence Chatmon Little (born November 2, 1945, in Groveland, Georgia) is a former guard in college and professional American football. He has been elected to the National Football League's Hall of Fame.

Larry Little played collegiately at Bethune-Cookman College. Undrafted out of college, Little began his professional career as a free agent with the American Football League's San Diego Chargers in 1967 and 1968, and was traded to the AFL's Miami Dolphins for the 1969 season, when he was named an AFL All-Star. He then played with the National Football League Dolphins from 1970 through 1980.

"I didn't particularly like the trade," Little said in the January 1974 issue of SPORT magazine. "The Dolphins weren't much then."

Little was a key contributor to the success of the Dolphins' punishing running attack of the early and mid 1970's, which featured Larry Csonka, Mercury Morris, and Jim Kiick.

In 1999, he was ranked number 79 on The Sporting News' list of the 100 Greatest Football Players.

Little's younger brother, David Little, was a linebacker for the Pittsburgh Steelers.

In 1992 he became head coach of the Ohio Glory of the World League of American Football. He also served as head coach of his alma mater, as well as being head coach at North Carolina Central University during the 1990s.

In 2007 was named to the Florida High School Association All-Century Team which selected the Top 33 players in the 100 year history of high school football in the state of Florida's history.
