Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound football and basketball athlete from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, is closing in a nice basketball milestone. Bruce is 38 points from hitting the 1,000 point mark.

This is very impressive indeed since Bruce is a two-sport athlete who has received some solid interest in both basketball and football.

So far this season in basketball, Bruce is averaging 17 points, nearly eight assists and six rebounds per contest.

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

Connecticut, Villanova, Akron and Georgia State have shown the most interest in recruiting Bruce in football. Brittingham has already visited the campus of Connecticut unofficially.

WHAT HIS AAU BASKETBALL COACH MATT PAULS THINKS ABOUT BRUCE BRITTINGHAM'S ATHLETIC CAREER:

"Bruce is also an effective basketball player, landing some low division one looks. He works very hard. He is a tough competitor worker who improves each practice and game. He has the heart of a lion.

"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."
