Dustin Brinson, Glen Este High School senior, has signed a letter-of-intent to further his education and athletic career at Bellarmine University, Louisville, Ky.

Brinson will be a member of the university’s bowling team, but he has not completely decided about what will be his major course of study. He is deciding between exercise science that will lead into physical therapy or social science with the emphasis on criminal justice.

At Glen Este, Brinson lettered two of the four seasons he played basketball and all three of the years he was a member of the varsity bowling team.
