He has taught special education at Novi for the past 20 years.  In 1998 and 2003, Tab was awarded Regional Coach of the Year.


Coach Kellepourey said, “Coaching in this 25th All Star Game is an honor and privilege. I want to thank all of our Novi football players who have worked together for the past five seasons. I have been so impressed with our players’ commitment and effort to play as a team. Coaching the All Stars will be easy if our East players work well as a team.”
