'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.

What's your outlook on the playoffs?

We can do well if we play like a team and play good defense. I think we can win some games in the playoffs.

What did you learn last year from sitting out because of your injury?

I mainly wanted to get back and start to play immediately. I watched how the varsity played, and I was able to get down the system mentally. It just made me want to get out there.

What did you work on in the offseason to better your game?

I was able to play the last four games of the season, so during the offseason I was at full-speed. I worked on my shooting and ball-handling.

Who do you model your game after?

I'd say Blake Griffin because he hustles for all his points, and he works hard for each one.

Who's role model and why?

Definitely my dad because he played college ball, and he has taught me everything I know.

What's your favorite vacation spot?

Holiday Camplands in Ohio. We mainly hunt and fish when we go there.
