'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.

Young, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound forward, is a native of McKeesport. As a junior at Hudson Catholic High School, Young was an All-Hudson County First Team pick who averaged 15.9 points and 11.6 rebounds.
