Two-sport athlete has decision to make

Aurora (Colo.) Overland Austin Conway has to decide between basketball and football. Read on to see what will go into that decision, his thoughts on his recruitment, and more.

Undersized, yet very fast with an increasingly accurate arm, Aurora (Colo.) Overland 2015 prospect Austin Conway looks the part of the new-age quarterback.

"I think I play like a lot of these really good short quarterbacks you see now," Conroy said. "I've made a ton of strides on the football field on the mental and physical part of the game.

"I'm understanding pre-snap reads better and how to lead the receiver at the right angle, things like that. Then when you factor in that I can still use my feet as a big advantage as well, I feel that I'm progressing in the right direction."

Not surprisingly, the 5-foot-8, 165-pound athlete has been hearing from plenty of schools.

"My recruitment has picked up," Conway said. "I went out to Nebraska for junior day and it was a really good time. Football is what matters there and the facilities are first rate.

"I'm also going to take a trip to ASU here soon. They have been trying to get me down there. I have talked to Arizona a little bit also."

More importantly, Conway has to decide if he wants to pursue football in college, because he is also a national basketball recruit.

"I'm going to decide here in the coming months which sport I'm going to focus on at the next level," he said. "I like both sports and I feel I can do either, but I want to go all in on one.

"Whatever sport I choose, I want to go to a school that has a big-time tradition and a place where not only are you playing for your team, but you're also representing a community."
