CANTON, Ohio (KMVT/KSVT) Generations of football fans will forever remember Jerry Kramer. The former Idaho Vandal was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday in Canton, Ohio.
The Class of 2018 also includes Robert Brazile, Brian Dawkins, Ray Lewis, Randy Moss, Terrell Owens and Brian Urlacher, as well as contributor Bobby Beathard.
Idaho's first All–American in 1956, Kramer played guard and kicker. Green Bay then drafted him and he played 11 seasons for them from 1958–68. The five–time All–Pro helped pave the way to five NFL championships and wins in Super Bowls I and II.
Kramer was named to the NFL's 50th anniversary team and the all–decade team of the 1960's.
"Coach Lombardi to sum it all up, after the game is over, the stadium lights are out, the parking lot is empty, you're back in the quiet of your room, championship ring is on the dresser, the only thing left at this time, is for you to leave the quality of excellence, you left this world a little bit better because you were in it. You can if you will! You can if you will! Thank you," Kramer said.
