Coach Kramer taught me more about the basics of football in the one year I played for him at Austin College (73-74)than anyone else ever came close to. He was a giant of a man who lived and breathed football. He cared for all of his players and tried to put them in a position where they could be successful and help the team at the same time. I just today learned that he had passed in January. Since leaving Austin College I participated in a dual career (Marine Reservist with 11 years active duty and 30 years coaching football in TX schools and two in the Marine Corps). His obit spells it out very clearly about his football abilities. I felt a great loss when I learned of his passing. But, I'm glad he no longer suffers. Although I retired from the Marines in 2003, I am still teaching math and coaching football at Groesbeck High School (TX). He inspired me to "just get the job done" (one of his favorite sayings on the field), and so I am. I regret that my oldest son (also a Texas coach) declined to go play for him at Emporia State when he had the opportunity in 1989. My sincerest condolences go out to his wife and family. God bless his soul.

I am sad that we have lost another wonderful coach from the Austin College community, but I am rejoicing in the knowledge of where he is and that there is no longer any suffering. Sandy, you and your entire family are in my prayers.

I played football for Coach Kramer for 2 weeks at Emporia State, but I couldn't hack it and quit. Three years later, while waiting tables and working my way through college at KSU, Coach Kramer and his wife came in and sat in my section. When I walked up to him, I introduced myself. His immediate response was, "Well of course I know you. How is Gertie (my mother) doing?" That was special. I am certain I would have learned a lot more from him had I stuck it out, but my decision to quit also led me to my wife at KSU.
My condolences to the entire Kramer family.
