Computer geek or football player

So what is he, a computer geek or a football player?
Houston Cy-Fair running back Omar Conteh demolished opponents to lead the talent-rich city of Houston in rushing with 2,129 yards and 31 touchdowns. He's as good in the classroom as he is on the field, which is leading several of the nation's top academic schools to his doorstep.
Duke, Northwestern, TCU and Houston have all officially offered Conteh with Stanford, Wisconsin, LSU, Nebraska and Oklahoma State nearing.
"He's done a great job for us," Cy-Fair coach Ed Pustejovsky said. "What's been the difference this year is that he has had time in the weight room. He's a three-sport athlete and we've never had much time to get him in here. The conditioning and strength development is enabling to break tackles to complement his speed.
"He's a slashing runner who uses the cutback very well. He can also catch out of the backfield," he said. "I've been here for 24 seasons and I rank in as one of the best we've ever had here. He's a big kid, with a great attitude and work ethic and a leader with his actions."
Academic will play an importance part in Conteh (6-0, 195-pounds) decision. He wants to major in computer engineering.
"I don't have any favorites right now and I'm trying to set up some visits," he said.
"I want to visit Duke, Stanford and Northwestern for sure. It's strange I never really thought I was that good at football when I was a freshman and then I just started to peak. I thought I was better in basketball and track. I'm dropping basketball so I can maintain my weight, but will be running track this spring."
And how did he come by some many yards this season?
Easy.
"We just didn't throw the ball that much," he said. "The running game was just clicking, so we just stayed with it."
