Two-Sport Athlete Has Some Division One Looks

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a player profile look at the individual game of a Garden State prospect Bruce Brittingham, who can compete effectively in two major sports on the high school level ...

Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound combo guard from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, is an athlete to watch over the next several months.

Brittingham, who has begun his football season, also has the ability to play basketball very effectively on the high school level. However, football is the sport he appears to have more division one interest on the college level.


Brittingham is a tough, physical guard who plays for one of the top AAU hoops programs for Matt Pauls' Team NJABC.

In addition, Bruce is a very competitive football player, giving him a couple of solid options in the future.


Pauls said Brittingham is a tough competitor worker who improves each practice and game. "He has the heart of a lion," said Pauls in a previous interview.

Bruce competes much bigger than his size. He's on the glass a lot, battling for loose balls against the bigger bodies in the paint and scoring near the lip of the rim.

Brittingham improved his game in basketball over the summer too while competing for Team NJABC, a program which competed in many of the top tournaments and events over the the last few months. He's had some low division one interest in the sport of basketball, according to Pauls.
