Kellogg has been the head coach at Stephen F. Austin for the past eight years, where he had a great 195-55 (.780) record. That run included seven consecutive seasons with 23 wins or more. He also led the Ladyjacks to six straight postseason appearances, two regular season conference championships, and two tournament championships, which led to two NCAA Tournament appearances. He also earned two conference Coach of the Year awards while at SFA the past eight years.

At Saturday’s scrimmage for the West Virginia football team, Bluefield native Sean Martin and the defensive line stood out as some of the top performers. Junior quarterback Garrett Greene took all of the snaps for the WVU offense.
