Hey, my name is Johnny Scholl (@scholli41 on instagram),
I am 20 years and playing goalie is my passion. I do not earn my money with it, but it is more than just a free time activity. The whole week I look forward to the next ice time. Just to make the big saves. To help my team to win. Even when I am not standing on the ice, I work hardly for hockey. I go to gym whenever I can to improve my speed, strength and condition.
My mask is really important to me. I play a sportmask T3. The design is really simple. Since I am a kid I am an huge fan of my hometown team from Germany, the Cologne Sharks (Kölner Haie). In 2013 they gave me the chance to work for them. I learned a lot about the things behind the scenes. They taught me what it means to work for a professional hockey organization. It was an once-in-a-lifetime-experience. Therefore I decided to go with the Cologne Sharks logo on both sides of my mask. In the background of the logo you can see the Cologne Cathedral, the most famous sight in Cologne.
At the chin of my mask my last name is written. I choosed a gothic lettering due to the fact that I liked the look of Cam Ward's lettering on his mask.
The most personal thing is on the backplate of my mask. It shows a scene from The Lion's King when Simba and his father are sitting together and look down on their kingdom. It is very personal to me because it is kind of a tribute to my father who passed away when I was six years old. I had and still have a lot of questions to ask, but I do not have the chance anymore - just like Simba. But I also will also listen to my heart when I have to - also just like Simba.
Thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed the story of my mask.
