SEMI PRO FOOTBALL RETURNS TO MAINE

PORTLAND - Saturday will be the first public workout session for Maine's newest semi-professional
football team, the Maine Sabers.

For those who follow Maine football, the Maine Sabers is a familiar moniker. From 1991 through 1993,
the Sabers were Maine's dominant semi-professional football team.

In January, the Maine Sabers were officially admitted into the Eastern Football League, the oldest semi-
professional league in the nation, along with 15 other teams. The team is based in Portland and will
play at nearby fields such as Portland's Fitzpatrick Stadium or Scarborough High School's stadium. The
team's 2011 schedule has yet to be finalized but the season will run from late June through September.

The team was organized by Stephen Goodrich, a former administrator with the original Sabers and
Jason McLeod, Windham High School football team's offensive coordinator.
