Mark attended Irving Crown High School, and during his time there played several sports, earning two letters in football, two in basketball, and three in track. He shined at the discus throw, but earned All-Tri County Conference honors in all three sports. After matriculating, he engaged in a college football career playing with the Northern Illinois Huskies from 1971 to 1973. He led the NCAA Division 1-A in rushing yards and set several school records. During his senior year, he was a part of the North-South Shrine Game and was a three time team co-MVP during his time with the Huskies. He was an honorable All-American named by several big publications such as the Associated Press and United Press International.

Kellar joined the 1974 NFL Draft, and was selected during the sixth round by the Minnesota Vikings. He was also selected during the 1974 WFL Draft during the seventh round by the Chicago Fire, with who he played during 1974 and posted good numbers. He then moved to play with the Chicago Winds the following year, continuing to perform well. However, the following year, the team folded and he signed with San Antonio Wings. His net worth increased thanks to all of these opportunities. He played with San Antonio for the remainder for the season, and then in 1976 he moved to the NFL to play with the Minnesota Vikings, where he played a total of 33 games for the team in the span of three years. His net worth continued to rise thanks to this opportunity, but after the 1978 season he decided to retire. During Mark’s playing career, he was named “Carpentersville Cruncher” and “Baby Bull”.

Thanks to his achievements, Mark was inducted into the Northern Illinois University Athletics Hall of Fame in 1983. The Huskies would retire his jersey number. He was also named to the All-Time Huskie Stadium Team in 1995, and then in 2004 to the inaugural class of the Dundee-Crown Athletic Hall of Fame. He subsequently also made appearances on television, and was a part of the 2013 film “Devil’s Deal”.

For his personal life, it is known that Kellar’s brother Scott also played in the NFL and as part of Northern Illinois University. Nothing is known about any romantic relationships, not even any rumours.
