As a freshman in 2009, Garelick converted 28-of-32 extra points and made all six of his field goals within 30 yards. Garelick was also named Southland Conference Special Teams Player of the Week after knocking home two field goals in the fourth quarter against Northwestern State, including a game-winning 21-yard chip shot with 0ne minute, 55 seconds to play.

Garelick struggled with his accuracy as a sophomore, missing 8-of-12 attempts. He was 2-of-9 from 30-49 yards.

Texas State now has three kickers on its roster (Taylor Matlock, Joshua Nino de Guzman and Zac Ammar) with a heralded freshman coming in the fall (Will Johnson). Ammar saw action in 2010, converting both of his attempted field goals.
