Garrett Hartley (born May 16, 1986 in Southlake, Texas) is an American football placekicker for the New Orleans Saints of the National Football League. He was signed by the Denver Broncos as an undrafted free agent in 2008. He played college football at Oklahoma.

Hartley prepped at Carroll High School in Southlake, Texas, where he was coached by former North Texas coach Todd Dodge. He set a state record with 90 PAT's in 2002 (surpassed by Carroll Dragon, Kevin Ortega, in 2004 and then another Carroll Dragon, Cade Foster, in 2009). Coming out of Carroll, Hartley was rated as the 2nd best placekicker in the country, by Rivals.com.

Hartley began his college career at Oklahoma in 2004. He spent most of his first season redshirted, but after inconsistent play from the current placekicker, head coach Bob Stoops decided to pull Hartley's redshirt and start him. He only played in three games during his abbreviated first season and finished 1-for-1 on field goals and 12-for-12 on extra points with his only field goal coming in the 2005 BCS National Championship Game. Hartley struggled during his sophomore year, missing eight of his 22 field goal attempts despite making two field goals from beyond the 50-yard line. Although he was more consistent with extra points, missing only one in 38 attempts.
