'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.

David Sexauer

School: Brentwood

Class: Senior

Sport: Basketball

Notable: Sexauer scored a career-high 41 points in Brentwood's 77-74 victory over Fort Cherry in a Section 3-AA game Dec. 22. The victory was the first of the season for Brentwood.

"A lot of my points came from just attacking the basket," Sexauer said. "At first I wasn't shooting well, but I just kept attacking the basket and it opened everything up. It was all of that and being aggressive."

Have any colleges contacted you?

There are some D-III schools. Washington & Jefferson, LaRoche, Waynesburg and Wooster are a few.

What major do you plan on pursuing?

I'm thinking about sports management or marketing. Somewhere in there. I've always been interested in sports management since "Jerry Maguire."

You're also a starting outfielder on the baseball team. Which do you prefer, baseball or basketball?

Basketball. I always loved baseball when I was younger. Since I started going to camps, I started to realize I was putting more time into practicing basketball as I got older.

Brentwood got off to a rough start this season. Do you think the team can put together a push as the season progresses?

I'm thinking we should be able to make a playoff push. We have to find the right pieces. We're not a big team, but we should be able to run. I think we're as good as any other team, we just have to figure out how to put everything together.

Name a role model.

My parents. They've been a big influence to me. They keep me level-headed.
