Two-Sport Athlete Has Some Division One Looks

Reporter Mike Sullivan has provided a detailed look at an East Coast, two-sport player who competes very effectively in both basketball and football for his high school ....

Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound football and basketball athlete from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, recently finished off a very successful basketball season for his team. Only a junior, he eclipsed the 1,000 point mark in his last game of the year, a championship title game.

Bruce scored over 19 points a game, dishing out seven assists and hauling down six rebounds per contest.

He is a terrific high school football player and has a higher range of interest in this particular sport.

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

Connecticut, Villanova, Akron and Georgia State have shown the most interest recently in the sport of football while low division one schools have monitored Bruce's basketball skills. Brittingham has already unofficially visited the campus of Connecticut for football.

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."
