'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.

Jon Turner's season-opening performance earned him a national honor. And the Washington & Jefferson defensive tackle is just a sophomore.

Turner, a Freeport graduate, was named to the Team of the Week after helping the Presidents to a 58-21 win over Wooster.

Turner (6-foot-2, 230 pounds) made nine tackles, including eight solo, and recorded two drive-halting sacks during his first career start.

In the team's second game, a 42-21 loss to St. John Fisher, Turner had five tackles.



Redshirt senior tight end Troy Hill (Valley) caught four passes for 44 yards, including his first touchdown reception of the season, in a 34-31 victory over Marshall.


Junior defensive end Cody McClelland (Freeport), sophomore lineman Reily Shane (Highlands) and junior middle linebacker Wes Schmidt (Kittanning) combined for 15 tackles, and McClelland had his first sack of the season in a 28-27 loss to Rochester.
