Kramer is a member of the Vandals Athletics Hall of Fame, as well as the 50th Anniversary NFL Team and 50th Anniversary Senior Bowl All-Time team. Kramer played for the Vandals from 1954-57, when he was drafted by the Packers in the fourth round as the 39th overall pick.

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.
