Reporter Mike Sullivan provides a free, detailed look at the individual game of a hard-working, two-sport, student-athlete who competes on the East Coast playing 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 season playing hoops for his school.

Bruce is averaging 18 points a game so far this season.

Brittingham also plays football. However, his season was derailed due to an injury. 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 this season, showing area recruits the program is worth keeping an eye on.

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.

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 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.

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."
