Brian Joseph Jozwiak (born June 20, 1963) is a former American football offensive lineman who played college football at West Virginia University before playing professionally for the Kansas City Chiefs in the National Football League.
Jozwiak was born in Catonsville, Maryland. He began his football career as a defensive tackle in the Baltimore area. Jozwiak earned honorable-mention all-metro player honors while playing for Catonsville High School.
When enrolling at West Virginia, Mountaineers' coach Don Nehlen moved Jozwiak from defensive tackle to offensive lineman. Jozwiak not only led the way for West Virginia ballcarriers, but blocked for Mountaineer quarterback Jeff Hostetler. In 1985, Jozwiak was named a consensus All-American, the sixth Mountaineer ever such honored at that time. He was also named a second team All-American by the Associated Press in 1983.
