Gostkowski’s family moved from his birthplace to Madison, Mississippi USA, where he enrolled in Madison Central High School in 1998. He matriculated in 2002, having received four varsity letters in football and soccer each during his studentship, as well as three in baseball. Consequently, he obtained the status of an All-State honoree in all of these sports. Stephen still holds his school’s longest field goal record, with a kick of 55 yards.
Upon matriculation, Gostkowski enrolled in Memphis University, thus joining the Memphis Tigers football team. Over his student years, he managed to score a total of 369 points for his team as a walk-on, while he also received an athletic scholarship for the Memphis baseball team. His total number of points earned him other records, with 70 field goals and 159 extra points (PATs), Gostkowski snatched the school record away from Joe Allison, who maintained it from 1990 to 1993. Additionally, during his junior and senior years, his performance earned him first team All-Conference USA honors, as well as the title of Special Teams Player of the Year in 2005. In the aforementioned year, also his senior season, Gostkowski was on kick-off duty for Memphis, with 68 kickoffs and 39 touchbacks. The talent scouts noticed his potential through the fact that he was using NFL tees (one-inch), instead of the NCAA-allowed two-inch ones.
At the start of his professional career in 2006, Gostkowski took over from Martín Gramática before the New England Patriots’ third preseason match; Stephen’s position remains unchallenged and unquestioned to this day. His first pro year ended with two notable highlights that signified he was a promising young player. One of them is the longest regular-season kick record versus the Chicago Bears, with a length of 54 yards. Gostkowski’s second early achievement is his season finish as the highest-scoring rookie, with a total of 20 FGs and 43 extra points, adding up to 103 points overall, which marked the beginning of his net worth increase.
In 2007, Stephen managed to beat Uwe von Schamann’s record for most extra points converted in a single season, with 74-for-74 PATs over the historical 64-for-64 (1999), thus further helping to potentially increase his fortune.
In the following season of 2008, Gostkowski received his career-first AFC Special Teams Player of the Month award, won thanks to his near-immaculate 9-for-10 FGs and 11-for-11 extra points. However, the so-far largest and most significant highlight in his career came in the same year, with 4/4 FGs and 5/5 PATs in a single game, and totaling 34 season FGs and a new record for the most in a single season. In December 2008, Stephen made his first Pro Bowl appearance as the AFC kicker, adding a considerable amount to his overall net worth. To top it off, The Associated Press named him into their All-Pro First Team.
In 2009, Gostkowski achieved his first AFC Special Teams Player of the Week award, with four FGs and two touchbacks in a single match. His contract with the Patriots expired in 2010, but was renewed for another four years at the team’s request. One of the largest contributions to his net worth is his near-perfect 2013 season performance, with 38 FGs out of an attempted 41, which set a franchise record for the Patriots, and contributed to his career-high season, with 158 total points. At the end of 2014, Gostkowski achieved an NFL-leading FG percentage of 94.6, with 35 made out of the attempted 37. 2015 marked his fourth season with over 150 points (151 total), while no other player has achieved over 150 points twice in NFL history. This year, Gostkowski set another franchise record with a 58-yard FG, and then broke it with a 62-yard one, thus greatly boosting his future net worth.
As for his personal life, Stephen Gostkowski has been married to Hallie Gostkowski since April 2008. Together, they have two sons, as well as a younger daughter.
