'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.

Robert Morris senior quarterback Jeff Sinclair (Highlands) finished his college career on Saturday with one of his best performances.

Sinclair compiled 322 yards of total offense — the fourth-highest single-game mark in the school's history — in a 26-21 loss to Monmouth.

Sinclair also recorded a career-best 21 completions on 34 attempts while throwing for 268 yards and two touchdowns for Robert Morris (4-7). He added 54 rushing yards on 11 carries.

Even though Sinclair missed two games this season, he finished with 2,029 yards — the fifth-most for a single season in school history.

In the Robert Morris career records, he finished second in total offense (6,689 yards), third in touchdown passes (57), fourth in completions (444) and passing yards (5,831), fifth in career rushing touchdowns (17), and ninth in rushing yards (858).

Senior right tackle Nate Hargraves (Highlands), in his second season as a regular, started all 11 games for Robert Morris.


Slippery Rock redshirt junior cornerback Anthony Saunders (Valley) was named to the All-Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference second team defense. Saunders led the conference in passes defended with 17 (14 breakups, three interceptions). He returned two interceptions for touchdowns and recorded 62 tackles, including 42 solo stops, for The Rock (6-5).
