Two-Sport Athlete Working Hard For D-1 Offers

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a detailed look at the individual games of two-sport student-athlete Bruce Brittingham, an East Coast prospect who can play both basketball and football ...

Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound football and basketball student/athlete from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, has had a solid football season so far for his team.

Bruce recovered nicely from a severe ankle sprain he suffered right before the summer hoops season last July.

Due to the severe ankle sprain, Bruce didn't participate in any big football or basketball AAU events in the month of July but has made progress physically after he recovered.

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

Bruce, who scored his 1,000th point in his last game of the 2010-2011 season, averaged close to 19 points a game for his Trenton Central basketball team.

He is more skilled in the sport of football and has a nice list of schools involved in his recruiting process as mentioned below.

Connecticut, Villanova, Akron and Georgia State have shown the most interest 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."
