Stephen Carroll Gostkowski (pronounced "gust-OW-ski"; the first 'K' is silent) (born January 28, 1984 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana) is a placekicker for the New England Patriots of the National Football League (NFL). He was drafted in the fourth round of the 2006 NFL Draft with the 118th pick, one of just two kickers drafted, and the only rookie kicker to make an NFL roster that year.

Gostkowski, who played both college football and baseball for the University of Memphis, is the most accurate kicker in Patriots history, and one of the most accurate kickers in NFL history. He is also a consistent and prolific scorer: he is only the second player in NFL history to score 500 points in his first four seasons in the league.
