East Coast Prospect Ready For D-1 Level

Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a free look at the individual game of a two-sport, student-athlete, who has the skill level to play both basketball and football in college ...

Bruce Brittingham, a 6-foot, 190-pound football and basketball student/athlete from The Perkiomen School in Pennsburg, Pennyslvania, continue to have a fine basketball season for his team.

Recently, Bruce has produced games of 18 and 19 points over the past two contests.

Previously, Bruce was sidelined the last three games of the football season due to a groin injury. He has recovered nicely from this injury to help his basketball team.

Brittingham, who committed to Wagner, is excited about playing next season for the Staten Island based college.

The Wagner basketball team had a huge upset of Pittsburgh in Pittsburgh a couple of weeks ago, showing area recruits the program is an up and coming exciting one.

BRUCE BRITTINGHAM'S SUMMER: Bruce's summer stalled and then came to a halt when he suffered a severe ankle sprain, prohibiting him to play in July and part of August in both basketball and football. He has recovered nicely from the injury.


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 previously showed some initial interest for football while low division one schools monitored Bruce's basketball skills over the past few months.

Brittingham previously took an unofficial visit the campus of Connecticut for football and will take his official visit to Wagner in the next few weeks.


"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."
