Coach Kramer compiled a record of 71 and 54 at ESU, including seven straight winning seasons -- the longest such period in Emporia State's 116-year history of intercollegiate football -- and NAIA playoff appearances from 1987-1989. He guided the Hornets to the 1989 NAIA national championship game, winning the NAIA Coach of the Year honor that year.

An All-America offensive lineman at the University of Nebraska and a draft pick by the Baltimore Colts, Kramer also coached at Southern Oregon and Austin College before coming to Emporia State. He was inducted into Emporia State's Hall of Honor in 2000. Seven of Kramer's former players -- David Tryon, Clifford Hodrick, Kelly Goodburn, Matt Keohler, Alvester Bobby, Wade LeDuc and Leon Lett -- are also in the Hall of Honor alongside Kramer. Lett and Goodburn won Super Bowls before retiring.

Kramer's funeral will be at 2 pm Saturday at Emporia's First United Methodist Church, with visitation at 1 pm. Attendees are encouraged to wear Emporia State colors.
