'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.

JaQuan Davidson has been something of a nomad in his high school career. As a freshman, he started out at West Mifflin and last year he was at McKeesport, but it appears he has found a home at Elizabeth Forward.

The junior quarterback has helped the Warriors to a 3-3 record and has kept them in the hunt for their first postseason berth since 2005.

Q: Did you think when you transferred you would have the kind of impact you've had on the football program?

A: Well, you need to win with teammates, and without them I wouldn't be doing what I'm doing. But I don't look at that. I just have to take one game and then worry about the next one.

Q: Are even you surprised at your numbers?

A: I'm not really surprised at the wins. I am a little at my stats even though last game wasn't so good.

Q: When you look at that last game (a 27-0 loss to West Mifflin), did you think that you could be on the winning sideline if you had stayed?

A: No. No. Really, No.

Q: What has it been like going through the transfer process three times in three years?

A: It's difficult. You have to make new friends and every time it's hard.

Q: What was it like going through the WPIAL to transfer?

A: I thought they had a problem about it. I don't know what to say. I'm just glad to be settled in here, and I'm happy I'm at Elizabeth Forward.

Q: How many colleges are looking at you?

A: I can't say very many. I haven't really been getting a lot of things lately.

Q: Does that surprise you?

A: Yeah it does. It really does. Maybe it's because I'm only in my junior year. I don't know.

Q: Where do you see yourself five years from now?

A: Playing pro football.

Q: Where do you project yourself as a college player?

A: When I played last season at McKeesport, I would see myself as a wide receiver because that's what I played when I was there. But I see myself as a quarterback now. I just have to build up and work hard.

Q: What do you like to do when you're not playing football?

A: I just stay in the house and watch SportsCenter all day.

Q: Is that where you get your moves?

A: Yeah.
