Carl Aschman

Coaching ∙ Aliquippa

 

 

 

 

Although Carl Aschman was a star center during his football playing days, he is best known as a high school coach. Carl played football at Charleroi and then went on to Washington and Jefferson College, where he earned All East honors and was selected to play in the 1929 East-West Shrine Game. His first coaching job was at California (PA) High School from 1929 to 1933. He then coached at Brownsville High School from 1934 to 1940, and his last Brownsville team won the WPIAL Class AA title. But it was at Aliquippa High School that Carl Aschman found his real coaching home, guiding the Quips to a 189-88-10 record from 1941 to 1964. His teams brought Aliquippa High its first WPIAL football championships in 1952, 1956, and 1964, with WPIAL runners-up status in 1942 and 1959. Carl retired from coaching in 1965 because of ill health, but retained a keen interest in Aliquippa High School’s football fortunes until his death from a heart attack at the age of 68 in November 1971. A month later, the Aliquippa football stadium was renamed the Carl Aschman Memorial Stadium in his honor.
