Idaho’s first football All-American, Jerry Kramer played for the Vandals from 1955-58. He earned four football letters and a pair of track and field letters. Kramer co-captained the football team and acted as a guard and the team’s kicker. He was chosen/ Second Team All-Pacific Coast Conference and Honorable Mention All-America in 1956. In 1957, he earned All-America honors and was drafted in the fourth round by the Green Bay Packers, which led to an 11-year NFL career that featured four NFL Championships and victories in Super Bowls I and II. As a thrower for the track and field team, Kramer also left Idaho with the school record in the shot put. Kramer’s No. 64 jersey was retired at Idaho on January 23, 1963. His sons, Matt and Jordan, played for the Vandals.
