Kramer steps down

June 11, 2011 - Mike Mathison
Bob Kramer has stepped down as the football coach at Madonna High School.

Unlike 14 years ago when he was hired, this hire will come into the job with a lot of expectations.

The program Kramer took over with 14 kids and on the verge of extinction has 17 returning lettermen, including 13 seniors.

All you coaches in the stands and former players say it was time for a change. Get a clue.

Kramer was old school and liked things his way. So what?

Seems to me a lot of wins were accrued under the coach. He never had a losing season in 13 years as the head coach. Can anybody else who has coached football for 10 years or more say that.

That is one impressive record.

Parents didn't like him because their kids didn't get enough playing time.

Players didn't like him because they didn't get enough playing time. Players didn't like him because players are not supposed to like their football coaches at times. That's the nature of the job.

Quarterbacks didn't like him because when coach called a dive play, they wanted to throw the ball.

I have heard that anybody could have and should have won a state championship with that crew in 2009. You are wrong and you know it. Not all coaches would have won a state title with that team.

The Madonna family, including all parents and former players and coaches and administration, should be thankful coach Kramer gave them 13+ solid years to resurrect a program that was on life support with a really bleak future.

The Blue Dons football program is now named as one of the best in the state.

Yep, ANY coach could have accomplished that.

Yeah, right!
