Chad Liptow - Bio


Chad Liptow, Carlson Baseball Coach

Coach Liptow played four years of varsity baseball under Dave Sontag at Jefferson High School as an outfielder and a catcher. Unfortunately, a sliding injury left a metal plate and eleven screws in his ankle and ended any chance of finishing his senior year. After graduating, Liptow coached at Jefferson for 10 years before being hired as a fourth grade teacher at Chapman. In 2003, he moved up to teach eighth grade history at Shumate and was hired to coach varsity baseball in the spring. Coach Liptow is a graduate of the University of Toledo and also worked on the assembly line at Ford Motor Co. for 5 years. He coached six years of JV football, two years at the freshman level and three years at the eighth grade level with a record of 61-19-3.
