Jose Rafael Septien (born December 12, 1953 in Mexico City, Mexico) was an American football placekicker in the National Football League for the Dallas Cowboys from 1978 through 1986. He was the leading scorer for the Cowboys those nine years. He initially played for the Los Angeles Rams in 1977 after finishing college at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

A Dallas County, Texas, grand jury indicted him January 22, 1987, on a charge of mishandling of a minor. Septien pleaded guilty on April 9, 1987, to a charge of indecency with a child in an agreement with prosecutors that brought him a sentence of 10 years' deferred probation and a $2,000 fine.[1]

During the nine seasons Septien played with the Cowboys (1978-1986), he made 162 field goals in 226 attempts; he also scored 388 points after touchdown (PAT). During Super Bowl XIII, Septien made a 27-yard field goal in the third quarter and scored four PAT, but the Dallas Cowboys lost to the Pittsburgh Steelers by a score of 35-31. He was selected to the Pro Bowl after the 1981 season.

Septien was named to the Cowboys' 40th anniversary team in 2000. He lives in Cancún, Mexico. Currently he is working as a timeshare salesman for NH Krystal Hotels.

He was originally a professional soccer player, playing for Club América from 1972-1974 but was never a regular starter so he decided to aim for the NFL.
