He was Idaho’s first football All-American when he gained honorable mention acclaim as a junior in 1956, and added first-team accolades in 1957. He also competed on the Vandals’ track and field team, leaving as the school record holder in the shot put. He was drafted by the Green Bay Packers with the 39th overall pick in the 1958 NFL Draft. Kramer played 11 seasons for the Packers from 1958 to 1968. He was a five-time All-Pro and helped pave the way to five NFL Championships, including wins in Super Bowls I and II.

P.L. “Flip” Kleffner

A three-year letter winner from 1951-54, Flip Kleffner did it all for the Idaho football team. As a junior, Kleffner led the team in rushing and receiving. He racked up 330 yards on 68 carries for a solid 4.9 yards per carry, to go with 13 catches for 146 yards. Kleffner also showed his clout on special teams as Idaho’s punter, averaging 41.1 yards per kick, including a school-record 82-yard bomb. Kleffner lettered one year in baseball as the team captain in 1953, and also served as the student body president in 1954. His legacy at Idaho was cemented when as the student body president, he claimed at the pep rally the night before the WSU game that “if we beat Washington State tomorrow, there will be no school on Monday”. Idaho won 10-0, school was shut down on Monday, and Flip was dubbed a “hero.”

“Sib” Kleffner

Sylvester “Sib” Kleffner earned three letters for the Vandal football team and three more for the baseball team from 1922-26. Kleffner was known as a powerful runner in Idaho’s backfield. He helped the team to a third-place finish in the Pacific Coast Conference in 1923 when the Vandals went 5-2-1 and outscored their opponents 164-26.
