What's a good major for someone who doesn't want a desk job and loves technology?

I'm 16 years old, just finished my sophomore year of high school, and seriously considering graduating early. So after next year I could be headed off to college. I want to go to a good college, and I'm hoping to start touring them next year. So I'm trying to a least get a vague idea as to what I want to major in so that I can start looking into specific departments at colleges.
I took the SAT as a freshman and scored a 2020 total score. 650 critical reading, 650 writing, and 720 math. That was almost 18 months ago, I would imagine my score is higher now. But Math has always been my strong suit... I just finished Calculus last year and loved it. I also love Physics. My least favorite subject is probably English.
However one thing that I really love is computers & technology in general. Right now I have a job in PC Support, which is somewhat annoying sometimes but pays well.
I'm not much of a computer programmer, I've dabbled in it a little but isn't hugely enjoyable to me.
The one thing that I would hate would be a desk job. One that I'm stuck behind a computer every working hour. I don't care if I could get more money from a job like that, it just doesn't interest me. I want to be managing people and projects, preferably in a field of technology.
What major or combination of majors would be good options for someone like me?
