Sebastian Janikowski played three seasons for the Seminoles, where he amassed a career scoring total of 324 points (3rd all-time for the school). In 1999 he became the first kicker to twice win the Lou Groza Award, given annually to the nation's top collegiate kicker. The Noles would now love to have a kicker like Janikowsi who kicked field goals in any kind of game situation. They would not like to have his off the field problems however.
Janikowski was drafted by the Oakland Raiders in the first round of the 2000 NFL Draft - only the fifth time a kicker had been taken in the first round in NFL history.Janikowski has annually performed at a high level. After the 2004 season he was given a five-year contract extension reportedly with $10.5 million, making him, at the time, the highest paid kicker in NFL history
