Sebastian Janikowski is a football placekicker for the Seattle Seahawks of the National Football League. He played college football for Florida State University, and was a two-time consensus All-America. He was drafted by the Oakland Raiders 17th overall in the 2000 NFL draft, the only time in the modern NFL era a kicker was taken in the first round. He has the nickname "Seabass".
On September 12, 2011, in a Monday Night Football game against the Denver Broncos, he tied the previous NFL record for the longest field goal at 63 yards, sharing the record with Tom Dempsey, Jason Elam, and David Akers. The record stood for just over two years when it was broken by then-Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater on December 8, 2013. Janikowski also holds the record for most games played with the Raiders; by the end of the 2017 season, he had played 268 games with the team.
