Idaho Legend Jerry Kramer Gets NFL HOF “Knock”

Seven knocks on the door and Jerry Kramer’s wait is over. The Sandpoint High School, Idaho Vandal and Green Bay Packers Legend hung up his cleats 50 years ago and was a finalist for the NFL Hall of Fame 10 times before opening that door to who he called, ‘the most beautiful man he’d ever seen.’ Now, he’s in.

Five NFL titles, two superbowls, a member of the 1960’s All-Decade team, and provided one of the most famous blocks as a right guard for quarterback Bart Starr to score in the Ice Bowl of 1967.

Last night, he joined six others in the 2018 Hall of Fame class that included three in their first year of eligibility. Linebackers Ray Lewis and Brian Urlacher, along with wide receiver Randy Moss. Terrell Owens made his way in along with Brian Dawkins, Robert Brazile and Bobby Beathard.
