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.
The Trojans' perfect 300 Baker game stands out in his thoughts as a highlight of his sports career. It was the first time it was ever recorded in Ohio and only the fourth time nationally.
"I made the game winning shots (in basketball) my junior year against Turpin and my senior year against Amelia," he said of other highlights of his prep athletic career. He also pointed out he is proud of having been chosen for so many all-tournament teams in bowling. He mentioned being nominated this year for the high school Clermont County Male Sportsman of the Year.
"Kathy DeMarko has been a coach, a parent, and a best friend," he said of his high school bowling coach and adding, very gratefully,. "My parents (Art and Dawn) supported me in whatever I did."
