Drafted in 2016, Scrimshaw spent his junior years mainly playing across half-back for the Sandringham Dragons and Vic Metro in the TAC Cup. In the under 18 competition, Scrimshaw averaged 23.7 disposals per game and took 7 intercept marks per game.
Scrimshaw boasts a damaging kick and intercept marking, plus his height gives him versatility to potentially move around the ground in the future.
