"This is the third season that the Red Claws have operated this high school fundraising program, and we are grateful that they chose Scarborough. I think this will be a great opportunity for our student-athletes to see the preparation and work that goes into being a professional while raising some much-needed funds for our athletic programs."

The Red Claws annually hold 1-2 fundraising scrimmages during the training camp to benefit local high school athletics. Previous beneficiaries include: Lewiston High School, Edward Little High School, Portland High School and Deering High School.

"The previous scrimmages have been very successful, and we are looking forward to a great event for Scarborough High School."
