Jerry Kramer has an obvious connection to the University of Idaho football program. His influence has extended beyond the gridiron and in turn his Pro-Football Hall of Fame supporters include some of the state’s heavy hitters.
The former Green Bay Packer got his start at the University of Idaho and is a legend there. The school and even some Idaho state lawmakers are pushing to get him into the hall of fame.
He's the central character in one of the University of Idaho's great success stories. That's why the university joined the campaign to get Kramer into the hall of fame.
It’s something they feel they owe the football great.
The initiative extends well beyond the Idaho campus, where the state's decision makers have lent their support.
Governor Butch Otter proclaimed June 1st 2012 Jerry Kramer Hall of Fame Day. State Senators Jim Risch and Mike Crapo expressed their support for the campaign at a recent legislative session. It's a testament to the impact Kramer has had on his state.
