'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.

Junior running back Chaise Bertocci is one of 16 members of the Frazier football team who experienced the team's long-awaited return to the playoffs last season. This year, Bertocci is focused on helping the Commodores make a return trip to the postseason.

Bertocci has been a consistent producer this season. He has rushed for a touchdown in each of Frazier's last three games, including a 5-yard scoring run in last week's loss to Jefferson-Morgan. Bertocci has 248 rushing yards on 35 carries.
