Austin "Goose" Gonsoulin (born 1938) of Baylor University was a professional football player, one of the original Denver Broncos from the 1960 season. At the end of his Bronco career, he was the all-time American Football League leader in interceptions with 43.

Gonsoulin was an All-American Football League choice in 1960, 1962 and 1963. His amazing durablity and toughness enabled him to start 61 consecutive games at one point in his career. Gonsoulin was also the captain of his college team at Baylor. He was selected to the second team, All-Time All-AFL, and is a member of the American Football League Hall of Fame.
