Northeast Guilford senior Steven Friel keeps himself busy in the fall. While focusing on soccer as his main sport, Friel is also the Rams' kicker for football games on Friday nights.

High school goals: "I wanted to play and start all four years of high school, which I've done. I also wanted to achieve all A's and B's in my classes, which I've done a pretty good job of but haven't completely accomplished. I also plan on studying at a four-year college when I graduate from high school."

Life goals: "Graduate from college and open my own business for either painting or as an electrician."
