Two-Sport Athlete Has Some Division One Looks

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a look at the recruiting process and individual game of two-sport athlete Bruce Brittingham, who is ready to take some campus visits, including one to a Big East program ...

Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound combo guard from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, is taking an unofficial visit to a Big East program in the next couple of weeks.

"I'm going to visit Connecticut unofficially," said Bruce, who is working hard to make himself a high division one football player.

Bruce is also a good basketball player, generating division one looks also in the area of hoops. However, college football programs seem to show more interest in his skill level in this sport.


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.
