'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.

Beth-Center football coach Ed Woods isn't a fan of what the WPIAL football committee did to the Tri-County South Conference.

By moving California and Monessen to the Black Hills Conference and replacing them with Avella and Bentworth, Beth-Center lost two of its rivals and most competitive games.

Avella (0-9) and Bentworth (1-8) were a combined 1-17 last season, while California (7-3) and Monessen (6-4) were each playoff teams.

Beth-Center went 8-0 and rolled to a conference title last year. The Bulldogs' closest conference game a year ago was a 33-21 victory against Frazier in Week 1.

Woods must replace numerous three-year starters from that squad, including quarterback Sal Faieta, wide receiver DeShan Brown and running back Jake Sofran.

“They were a lot of our offense,” Woods said. “We have a lot of question marks. We were fortunate that a lot of our games were blowouts and a lot of players saw varsity action. Our younger players have a lot of experience.”

Geno Faieta is expected to take over for his brother at quarterback, speedster Cody Durant and Matt Riggle will share running duties, and C.J. Novak has good quickness and good hands as another skill player.
