Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound basketball and football player from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, has generated division one interest in two major sports. PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

Bruce told us he was definitely going to take an unofficial visit to Big East program University of Connecticut to play football.

Bruce is also a decent basketball player, landing some low division one looks.


Brittingham is a tough, physical guard who plays for one of the top AAU hoops programs for head coach 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.
