He played offensively and defensively for the Vandals and, during his junior and senior seasons, averaged 58 minutes playing time per game.

The limited edition bobbleheads (1,000 will be made) are available only to Vandal season ticket holders. Each season ticket account will receive one Kramer bobblehead.
