GREENSBORO, N.C. -- One middle school student in Greensboro is using his talents in the classroom and on the field to make a difference.

Evan Lichenstein is an eight-grade student at Northwest Guilford Middle School who loves art and soccer, and he's taking life lessons from both of them.

"You have the defenders who will pass the ball up and then you get a lot of teamwork working and then you start scoring and winning," he said of soccer.

In the classroom, he says you have to work hard to be successful.

Lichenstein has his sights set on making the high school soccer team next year.
