Special Encore Presentation: Jerry Kramer
Jerry Kramer played 11 years in the NFL with the Green Bay Packers as an offensive lineman. As a 6'3, 250 lb. right guard, #64 was an integral part of the famous Packer Sweep, a signature play in which both guards pull out from their normal positions and lead-block for the running back going around the end. Jerry helped the Packers win five NFL titles and the first two Super Bowls. Jerry also served as the team's place kicker in 1962,'63 and part of 1968. He kicked 29 field goals, 90 extra points, for a total of 177 points. He also kicked 3 field goals and 1 extra point in the Packers 16-7 victory over the New York Giants in the 1962 NFL title game. Jerry was an All-Pro five times, and a member of the NFL's 50th anniversary team in 1969, but surprisingly, even after appearing on the list of finalists ten times since becoming eligible, has not been inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. In NFL Network's Top 10 list of players not in the hall of fame, he was rated #1.
