Michael John Kiselak[1] (born March 9, 1967 in North Tarrytown, New York) was an American football player who played center for the Toronto Argonauts of the Canadian Football League, where he was an All-Star and won the CFL's Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award in 1996 and 1997. He moved to the National Football League next season to play for the Dallas Cowboys, but he appeared only in multiple games. He also played in the World League of American Football, and the short lived XFL where he played (per Jerry Jones / Dallas Cowboys)the entire season as the starting center.

He attended the University of Maryland, where he played football as a guard. In October 1989, he was named the Atlantic Coast Conference Offensive Lineman of the Week.[2]

In 2009 Kiselak was accused by the Securities and Exchange Commission of lying to roughly 14 friends and family members who invested with his firm Kiselak Capital Group. Kiselak, who raised about $24 million from investors since he opened his Kiselak Capital in 2007, told investors that his firm generated steady monthly returns of 2.25 percent by trading in Treasury bills. In addition to being accused of lying to investors about his investment strategy, Kiselak is accused to have failed to disclose to investors his 35 percent performance fee, said the SEC, which did not name Kiselak's alleged victims.[3] He was forced to disgorge $19 million over these charges.[4][5]

As of 2010, Kiselak is one of the board of directors for Kids Matters International, a children's charity organization.[6] He is also a church minister under Church on the Rock- International[7] and a motivational speaker.[8]
