Kevin James Mawae (pronounced /məˈwaɪ/; born January 23, 1971 in Savannah, Georgia) is a former American National Football League center. During a 16-year football career, he played for the Seattle Seahawks (1994–1997), New York Jets (1998–2005), and the Tennessee Titans (2006–2009). Mawae was a four-year starter for LSU and was selected second-team All-SEC by Associated Press and SEC coaches as senior. Mawae is one of the top centers of recent times, having been selected to the Pro Bowl on six consecutive occasions (1999–2004), and was a eight-time All-Pro selection.

Mawae spent five years of his childhood (age 7–12) in Hanau, Germany, when his father retired Sgt. 1st Class David Mawae, who served 23 years in the U.S. Army, was stationed there, and it was there that he began playing football. His father's career also took him for periods of time to South Korea, Germany, Georgia, Kansas, Huntsville and Louisiana.

Mawae earned All-State and All-Academic honors at Leesville High School.
