Two-Sport Athlete Selected To Kline Memorial

Reporter Mike Sullivan has the story on two-sport student/athlete Bruce Brittingham, who was recently selected to compete in the Mary Kline Memorial All Star game being held at The Pennington School in New Jersey ...

Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound football and basketball athlete from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, will compete in the upcoming Mary Kline Memorial All Star event to be held on May 28th at The Pennington School in New Jersey.

Brittingham, who had a terrific boy's basketball season in 2010-2011, is just a junior. But 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 his past season while handing out seven assists and grabbing down six rebounds per contest.

He is also 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."
