Like a finely tuned sports car or a thoroughbred race horse, Curtis Conway fits the built-for-speed mold. And, as every football scout knows, speed sells. The senior quarterback for Hawthorne High School spent most of last season impressing scouts by running circles around the opposition. When the dust settled, two games into the CIF-Southern Section playoffs, Conway had accounted for a staggering 39 of the Cougars' 42 touchdowns.

While Bishop Montgomery's version of "The Fridge" flopped on opening night, cool-handed quarterback Zak Odom of Leuzinger pulled off a convincing impersonation of Curtis Conway. Odom, who played in the shadow of the former Hawthorne star last season, put on some nifty moves of his own as he passed for three touchdowns and ran for a fourth to lead Leuzinger to a 27-0 victory at Bishop Montgomery in the football opener for both teams Friday night. Although not as fast as Conway--who is?

It was simple mathematics that prompted USC Coach Larry Smith to keep erstwhile flanker Curtis Conway at quarterback. A state sprint champion and All-American quarterback at Hawthorne High School, Conway was used as a wide receiver and kick returner as a freshman at USC last season.

The play of USC flanker Curtis Conway has led to speculation that he will skip his senior year and be available for the NFL draft next spring. "Curtis and I talked about that a couple weeks ago," USC Coach Larry Smith said. "After the season is over, he and I are going to sit down, and he'll decide what's best for Curtis Conway." Conway is second in the Pacific 10 Conference with an average of 173 all-purpose yards, but Smith would like him to get the ball more often.

Curtis Conway couldn't be anything but a USC Trojan football player. Even if he didn't run the 40 in 4.25 seconds, have the hands of a Paris pickpocket and the moves of Nureyev, you'd know he belonged in a cardinal and gold uniform. It's the name. Guys with alliterative names like that are either British poets--or SC flankers or tailbacks. As chronicled before here, SC usually looks as if it got its varsity from the pages of "Ivanhoe" or "The Knights of the Round Table."

After being undrafted, James Allen has been waived, relegated to the practice squad and declared inactive. Given the chance he has long sought, Allen had Chicago's best single-game rushing effort of the 1990s Sunday, gaining 163 yards in his first NFL start to lead the Bears to a 24-3 victory over the Baltimore Ravens to end a six-game losing streak. "Wow. I always knew I could do it. I always had confidence in myself.

Curtis Conway, the Bears' leading receiver and long-ball threat, broke his left collarbone in Sunday's night 22-10 exhibition victory over the Arizona Cardinals (0-3) at Chicago. The Bears are 2-2. Bear Coach Dave Wannstedt said Conway would be out six to eight weeks. "It's a real shame," he said. "It's part of the game. He dove for the ball and the guy ended up on top of him." Last season, Conway became the first receiver in Bear history to put together consecutive 1,000-yard seasons.

Big openings along the line of scrimmage, big gains beyond it. Rashaan Salaam felt like a rookie again. "It's been a long time," Salaam said Sunday after rushing for 115 yards and two touchdowns in the Chicago Bears' 35-9 victory over the St. Louis Rams. "It feels pretty good to run for 100 yards but I kind of feel bad they didn't put me in there until we don't have a chance for the playoffs," he said. "I just wish I would have gotten more playing time when it was on the line."

Both could be sidelined for weeks. Ryan, Nichols and No. 1 running back Neal Anderson, who injured a hamstring earlier in the week, flew back to Chicago for tests and returned Friday night.

Curtis Conway admitted he was a bit nervous Sunday as he waited to find out when he would be picked in the NFL draft. The swift USC wide receiver and kick returner, who turned pro after his junior season, didn't have long to wait. The Chicago Bears used the seventh pick overall to select the versatile Trojan, who in only three seasons became the school's all-time leading kickoff returner. "Now I can go eat," he said with a laugh.

Quarterback Curtis Conway, a prep All-American at Hawthorne High and one of USC's top football recruits, said Monday he will enroll at Nebraska and sit out this season rather than work toward entering USC next year. Conway signed a letter of intent with USC. But he was released from the agreement after the school enforced its policy of not accepting players who do not meet the requirements of Proposition 48, the National Collegiate Athletic Assn.

On the last play of the first half of USC's 24-7 loss to Fresno State Tuesday night in the Freedom Bowl, Trojan quarterback Rob Johnson lofted a desperation pass down the left sideline toward flanker Curtis Conway. Strong safety Sam Watson moved over to cover for Fresno. "I saw the ball," Watson said, "but I couldn't get there, so I just went for a good lick." Conway said Wednesday that Watson's hit helped push him out of college football. He landed awkwardly, suffering a strained left knee.
