Two-Sport Athlete Has Some Division One Looks

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a look at a two-sport star who competes very effectively in high school basketball and football on the East Coast and is starting to line up some unofficial visits ...

Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound combo guard from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, told us he hopes to take a few campus visits over the next several months.

Previously, Bruce told us he was definitely going to take an unofficial visit to Big East program University of Connecticut, a school that has impressed him in the way the football team has progressed over the past few years.

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 Matt Pauls, a coach for the Team NJABC AAU boy's basketball program.

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. He has some low division one interest in the sport of basketball, according to Pauls.
