Jerry Kramer (born January 23, 1936, in Jordan, Montana) is a former professional football player, author and sports commentator, best remembered for his 11-year NFL career with the Green Bay Packers as an offensive lineman.
As a 6'3", 250 pound right guard, Kramer was an integral part of the famous "Packer Sweep", Vince Lombardi’s signature play.
Kramer was an All-Pro five times, and a member of the NFL's 50th anniversary team in 1969, but surprisingly, it took 50 years to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame!
ABOUT THE DOCUMENTARY:
From award winning filmmaker Glenn Aveni, a Wisconsin native and Green Bay Packers super fan - The Jerry Kramer Story is the one and only official biographical film on the amazing life of Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Kramer.
THE GREATEST PLAY IN THE GREATEST GAME
Jerry is a “living legend” most noted for “THE BLOCK”, arguably the greatest NFL play within one of the greatest games ever played “THE ICE BOWL”.
There is no other NFL football team that can boast (5) world championships in 7 years, and (3) in a row. Jerry Kramer and teammates rose above all the obstacles put in front of them to achieve the highest standard of excellence. Jerry explains the true intimate relationships and personalities it took to excel on the field as a team, and in life as an individual.
A sports classic, Jerry Kramer and Dick Schaap's Instant Replay took readers inside the 1967 season of the Green Bay Packers, following that storied team from training camp to their dramatic victory in Super Bowl II. Instant Reply was written in the first person and from Jerry’s perspective of a bygone era of sports, filled with blood, grit, and tears. This book sold over 1,000,000 copies and put Kramer onto the world stage as a successful and published author. Instant Replay was controversial at the time for a pro athlete to allow that kind of insider access.
WAITED 50 YEARS TO REACH THE HALL OF FAME
We have the exclusive interview with Jerry just before his induction ceremony. It's been a long time coming and no one was more deserving to be in the Pro Football HOF.
