Two-Sport Athlete Has Recruiting Interest

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a detailed look at a two-sport, student-athlete who competes on the East Coast playing both basketball and football on the prep level ...

Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound football and basketball student/athlete from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, has improved his skill level in both basketball and football over the past several months.

BRUCE BRITTINGHAM'S SUMMER: Bruce's summer stalled and then came to a half when he suffered a severe ankle sprain, prohibiting him to play in July and part of August in both basketball and football.

PREVIOUSLY REPORTED:

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