'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Age: 17

Family: Parents, Sam and Carolyn Soyring; brother, Zack, 20.

Residence: Canonsburg

School: Soyring will be a senior at Canon-McMillan High School this fall.

Hobbies/interests: Soyring is a cadet senior airman with the Civil Air Patrol's Washington Squadron 601 and a Private 1st Class in the Army Reserves. He runs cross country for Canon-McMillan High School and competes in the pole vault, the 4x100 meter relay and the 400 hurdles on the varsity track team.

Noteworthy: Soyring will spend his entire summer vacation at Fort Jackson, S.C., for basic training with the Army Reserves. He expects the summer to be physically demanding and to help him prepare for a career in the military. Soyring left Monday and will miss the first week of classes in the fall. Through an early enlistment program, he joined the Army Reserves on his 17th birthday.

Quote: “My whole summer is dedicated to the Army this year. This a step toward what I want to do for a living. I hope it helps me grow as a person and helps me get a better a understanding of what the Army is and what it entails.”
