Daniel Wade Sepulveda (born January 12, 1984 in Austin, Texas) is an American football punter for the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers in the fourth round of the 2007 NFL Draft. He played college football at Baylor. He is the only two-time Ray Guy Award winner.
He was an All-American at Baylor University. He was a walk-on to the football team as a linebacker, and after a redshirt freshman season (despite not having punted since junior high) became the Bears' starting punter, earning a scholarship after the 2003 season. He won the Ray Guy Award in 2004 and 2006 as well as being a three time All American team member (3rd in 2004, 2nd in 2005, 1st in 2006). He is the only punter to win the Ray Guy Award twice.
Sepulveda was drafted in the fourth round by the Steelers in the 2007 NFL Draft. After the release of former starter Chris Gardocki, Sepulveda successfully bested Mike Barr for the starting job. Sepulveda signed a three year contract for $1.46 million with the Steelers on May 31, 2007. He was given the nickname, "Spatula", by fans.
On July 29, 2008, Sepulveda tore the ACL in his right leg for the second time. He had surgery to repair a torn anterior cruciate ligament on August 6. He was placed on injured reserve by the Steelers after the surgery, officially ending his season.
On December 5, 2010, he again injured his right knee in a game against the Baltimore Ravens. Jeremy Kapinos was signed to replace Sepulveda. On July 31st, 2011, the Steelers re-signed Sepulveda to a 1 year deal.
