Two-Sport Athlete Has Some Division One Looks

Reporter Mike Sullivan takes a look at the individual game and regular season progress of two-sport student/athlete Bruce Brittingham, who is closing in on a nice milestone in his basketball career ...

Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound football and basketball athlete from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, is now about eight points away from hitting the 1,000 point mark.

Brittingham plays his last game this Thursday in his attempt to hit such a wonderful milestone since he is a two-sport athlete who has received some interest in both basketball and football.

So far this season Brittingham is averaging 17 points, nearly eight assists and six rebounds per game.

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."
