Rob Kramer, who has served as St. John Fisher College’s Offensive Coordinator since 2012, is excited to be co-leading the coaching at Rochester’s first FCA football camp. He sees FCA as an opportunity to work with a great organization and for a great cause, all while doing what he loves to do: work with kids, coach football and share the word of the Lord. He also enjoys the opportunity coaching provides to help mold America’s youth, “I try to get the best out of every individual I cross — whether it be in football or in life – to get their best – physically and mentally and help enhance their overall character and integrity.
“I embrace being a part of a successful program — whether you are the first guy out there or the last guy out there. In the game of football, there are highs and lows — but you are always going to get an opportunity. I was fortunate enough to receive an opportunity, and when one comes you have to relish in it, because they seldom come,” Kramer said.
Kramer graduated from Oneida High School in 2004 as one of the school’s top athletes. An All-State performer in both baseball and football, Kramer was also a 1,000-point scorer for the Indians’ basketball team.
A 2008 graduate of St. John Fisher College, Kramer is considered one of the finest quarterbacks in Fisher’s football history. He was a two-year starter who led the Cardinals to back-to-back shares of the Empire 8 Conference title in his junior and senior seasons. In 2006, the Cardinals advanced to the national semifinals, before advancing to the national quarterfinals in 2007, becoming just one of four teams to make consecutive appearances deep in the NCAA Championships. Kramer served as a team captain in his final campaign, and ended his career ranked in the career top 10 lists for touchdowns (50, first), attempts (554, second), completions (342, second), and completion percentage (61.7, second). At the end of his career he also owned the single-season record for passing yards (2,590 yards, 2007).
Upon graduation, Kramer joined Fisher’s coaching staff, where he spent the first four seasons serving in various capacities, including quarterbacks, wide receivers and special teams’ coordinator. During his four year tenure as Offensive Coordinator, St. John Fisher has averaged 34.8 points per game and a 57-15 win-loss record.
Kramer holds a bachelor’s degree from St. John Fisher in Business Management with a concentration in Marketing, and completed his M.B.A. from Fisher’s Bittner School of Business. Kramer and his wife Erin reside in Webster, NY with their young son Colin.
