Lambeau Legends Push: Get Jerry Kramer into the Hall of Fame
GREEN BAY, Wis.- An effort is underway to have Packers 'Glory Years' All-Pro lineman Jerry Kramer enshrined into the NFL Hall of Fame.
25 players including Bart Starr, Roger Staubach and Frank Gifford are among the greats of the game to sign on with a grass roots campaign to get Kramer into the hall.
Started by his daughter, Alicia, the move is directed to the hall's Senior Selection Committee to nominate Kramer. “The outpouring of support for my Dad has been unbelievable,” said Alicia Kramer.
“To have so many great players who played with and against him speak up in support of his
induction into the Hall of Fame is pretty overwhelming.”
Kramer, a five-time NFL All-Pro offensive lineman, played for the Packers for 11 years and helped Green Bay win five NFL titles as well as the first two Super Bowl games. Kramer was selected as one of the 50 greatest players of the NFL’s first 50 years and is the only member of that group not in the Hall of Fame. He retired after the 1968 season.
So far, 25 legends of the game are on board.
To support the movement, Alicia Kramer has started an online campaign found here.
