Quentin Schiess Wins SCAHA Scholarship Award

Quentin Schiess

The Jr. Kings are pleased to announce that Quentin Schiess, goalie for the Midget 18 AA team, has been selected to receive the SCAHA Scholarship Award for the 2012-2013 season.

The scholarship award is given to two registered SCAHA players in good standing (3-season minimum) with a high school G.P.A. of 2.0 or higher and who are accepted to a post high school institution. With a 4.022 GPA, Quentin has showed that he’s ready for the next level of education and hockey. The $1,500 award will go a long way to help in his journey.

Quentin has always loved hockey. From the moment he started walking, he strapped on his plastic, Fisher-Price roller blades, found a stick and started playing. There was no stopping his enthusiasm for the sport.

Quentin’s mom, Mary, talks of how he fell in love with the goalie position:

“When Quentin was six, his dad was coaching him in the El Segundo Rec. Park roller hockey league and there was no goalie. They took the bag of goalie gear home, suited him up and he NEVER looked back. He had goalie blood in his veins. Of course, his biggest advocate and mentor, Jamie Storr can be credited with much of Quentin’s success and continued passion. When Jamie was transitioning into retirement he started a goalie school out of his garage. Quentin was one of his first students at around age 11. We live by Jamie and Quentin would workout in his garage with the puck machine a couple times a week. Eventually, Jamie set-up Jamie Storr Goalie School at Toyota Sports Center. Quentin has been a student at Jamie’s camps and clinics and now participates as an assistant instructor, when needed.”

Quentin has been a member of the Jr. Kings for his whole career, playing on the Squirt A2, PeeWee A, PeeWee AA, Bantam AA, Bantam AAA, Midget 16AA, and Midget 18AA teams.

This award is a culmination of years of hard work on and off the ice. While he still has one year of eligibility remaining with the Jr. Kings, Quentin will instead be heading to UCLA where he’ll strap up in goal for the Bruins.

Congrats Quentin on all your accomplishments and best of luck at UCLA!
